HHI works with our community partners to create a sustainable and just food system in the Miami Valley.

Our Hungry Neighbors Need Help NOW!

Here's How You 

Can Contribute


An anonymous Christmas angel with long-standing ties to Tony Hall donated $300,000 to help the hungry in the Dayton area.  The donor, who lives out-of-state, worked with Ambassador Hall and the Hall Hunger Initiative to direct the gifts in ways that make the most impact.

“I’m deeply moved by our donor’s kindness in this time of great need,” said Ambassador Hall.  “This contribution is a challenge to everyone to find a way to help. Whether it’s writing a check, volunteering, taking a meal to a hungry neighbor or dropping off food at a nearby foodbank, we all have to find a way to help in these difficult times.”

“This is a tough time for many of our neighbors. I’m asking anyone who can to step up and make a contribution. Every dollar helps to brighten the Christmas season for people in need,” said Hall.

Take food to a neighbor in need, donate to your favorite charity or support a faith organization that's helping the hungry. If you need ideas on how to help, here are just a few of the community organizations doing inspiring work under tough circumstance.  Our community can't wait, please donate today.
