Hunger vs Hunger
Total Money Donated Since Inception: $96,322 and Counting
What is Hunger vs Hunger?
Hunger vs Hunger began as a small fundraiser aimed at helping get people back on their feet during the worst of Covid in 2o21. In just two years, we have raised over $71,000. We have grown from two sponsors, to fifteen. And yet, the need at the Bellingham Food Bank has more than tripled. On July 8th, 2023, I will set out, once again, to burn as many calories in one day as I can to continue to raise awareness for the food insecurity that exists in Whatcom County.

Every dollar raised from this fundraiser goes directly to the Bellingham Food Bank. Currently, 16% of Whatcom County relies on a food bank every week. The Bellingham Food Bank is one of the highest rated non-profits, with a program expense ratio of 94%. I've been volunteering there since 2021 and can't express how important they are to so many people in our community. Any donation goes a long ways and I thank you all in advance.
Consider donating today.
Growing from Last Year's Success
Every year I do this, I continue to try and grow. My mind bounces from big idea to bigger idea and despite being just one person, I try and bring as many of those ideas to fruition as I can. This year, with the help of a couple incredible people, I was able to get 15 different companies to partner up for Hunger vs Hunger. These companies have helped to exponentially grow the number of people who hear about the fundraiser, as well as providing generous donations of their own. Because of this year's boost in sponsors, I am hoping we are able to blow by our fundraising goal of $50,000!
