By banding together and challenging convention, they are working to defeat hunger both in the United States and around the world.
In fiscal year 2013, their partnerships enabled us to give $215 million in food, essentials, and disaster relief to over 10 million individuals in the U.S. Because school is the best way to help kids escape poverty, they help them attend and finish school by distributing backpacks to homeless children and offering free books and supplies to educators through their Teacher Stores.
