Fueling Kids' Brightest Futures
Watch how Living Hungry is changing the lives of our local homeless hungry students. You can too! Join us.
Fact is 1 out of 5 American students are failing to thrive due to malnourishment. Food insecurity plagues our American children living in poverty, right here at home. Many endure 68 hours of hunger over the weekend away from school meals. Malnourishment robs our young students of their brightest futures, from elementary school to high school. This problem of the hunger gap is solvable. We solve it.
Living Hungry is a new charity born of the belief every child has a potential worth nourishing. Poverty setbacks and malnutrition plague our at-risk teens and homeless youth worst. Living Hungry is created to provide nutrition products and logistical solutions by teaming with our fiscal agent South Florida Hunger Coalition and funding partners to feed the children to change the storyline and unleash hidden genius in the next generation.
Currently Feeding Students & Youth in Palm Beach County, Collier County, Okeechobee County, St. Lucie County, Martin County, Broward County and expanding fast. Be next.
Our vision is big. Not to simply fuel children to overcome poverty barriers, but to unleash wild success stories, turn-arounds in the making, and make underdogs victorious! We want to see youths come from behind, tap into their “hunger” to realize their dreams, imagine their bright futures, and then live out their best lives. How do we do this? We innovate new solutions. We create more efficient supply chain logistics. We research and develop new products. We unleash peak performance. We partner well. We plan to integrate local collaborators, automate systems, and construct dynamic and sustainable platforms. All to fuel up the most at-risk students for peak performance:
Over 880 homeless students were identified in Collier schools last year. Many endure 68 hours of hunger over the weekend away from school. We are a group of locals who set out to change that. We teamed with the best, St. Matthew's House. Hope is now found in a $12.50 bag of food that solves the problem for 1 child for 1 weekend. $450 takes care of the whole year. Together we will do this. You are the hope. Help today..
We will not stop until every hungry homeless student is fed every weekend of the school year in Palm Beach County. We are going big! 4,000 students are known to be homeless in Palm Beach County Schools. We plan to feed them all. Here's your part: Adopt a School. Take a Classroom. Feed One Student.
No Matter where you meet, your meeting can have a lasting impact. To experience the joy, add packing Living Hungry packs to the agenda. Any group, party, meeting, small or large, will have fun packing Fuel Up Bags for local homeless students to eat over the weekend. Personal hand-written notes cheer on the one receiving the bag making this a memorable experience all will be talking about long afterwards.

Healthy eating habits formed today as teens can last a lifetime.
Palm Beach County Youth Services & Com. Melissa McKinlay asked Living Hungry to design a weekend bag of food teens will eat with enough healthy nutrition to last the weekend. Meet the Filling Station! This product is packed with love from Living Hungry, South Florida Hunger Coalition, and The Poverello Center. All three partners agree, our healthy teens deserve the best quality nutrition, fresh produce, fruits and vegetables.
The Palm Beach County Youth Empowerment Centers in Belle Glade, Riviera Beach and Lake Worth mentor some amazing teenagers who will enjoy these 9,000 calorie bags of food to sustain them over many weekends to come.

The South Florida Hunger Coalition (SFHC), with the support of dozens of community partners, coordinates the efforts of more than 75 hunger-related agencies across South Florida, including Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade counties, as well as activities in Monroe, Collier, Lee, Hendry, Martin and St. Lucie counties. We work to eradicate hunger by acting as a resource and convener for hunger-related initiatives, such as the mobile Summer BreakSpot feeding program in Broward County. SFHC advocates for greater utilization of existing federal programs such as school breakfast, school lunch, after-school snacks, after-school dinners, summer meals, school break, weekend feeding programs and expanded nutrition education. We provide technical guidance, support and assistance to implement and expand these programs as well as other hunger-related initiatives among stakeholders at the local, regional and state level.
