Minneapolis – For the past two years, volunteers have worked with Feeding American to provide nutritious meals to the hungry in underserved communities.
Now, the nonprofit organization has expanded its Feeding the World program to the U-20 and U-21 teams.
In a news release, the organization said that the two teams will receive free meals at least twice per month starting in February.
“It is a great way to keep track of how much food is coming in and to get to know each other and learn more about each other,” FeedingAmerica president and CEO Michael Klima said in the release.
The U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has called Feeding Americans’ program a “world-leading global initiative” and a “unique opportunity to give people the opportunity to meet, grow and serve each other.”
Feeding America, founded in 2010, is a U.K.-based non-profit food and agriculture organization that aims to feed the world’s hungry.
The U.C. Davis-based nonprofit has served as a catalyst for more than 400,000 meals in more than 60 countries.
The organization serves food to more than 1.5 million people and has received more than $1 billion in support from the U, Canada, Australia and Norway, according to the organization.
The Feeding USA program is an extension of Feeding Africa, the world-wide program that focuses on improving the lives of African migrants and refugees in Africa.
Feeding Africa has served more than 6 million meals to people in the continent since 2014.
