Double your impact with a gift to Care and Share: Senior Feeding Program. Your gift will be fully matched!

For many in Southwest Florida, retirement hasn’t lived up to its dreams. Together we can make a difference for seniors in need right here in our community.

Our mission is to lead our community in the fight to end hunger.

Our vision is that no one has to go hungry in our community.

Take Action

About 151,600 people in the five Southwest Florida counties we serve struggle with hunger, which means they may not know where their next meal is coming from. Here are three ways to help.

Faces of Hunger

We feed about 28,000 people each week through our partner agencies and our Fulfill Mobile Pantries program. Our clients include children, families, seniors and veterans.

They may have just lost a job or may be underemployed. They may be battling illness, struggling on a fixed income or dealing with a life-changing circumstance such as divorce or the death of a loved one. We are here to help.
