Hunger Free America was founded in 2001 and received its nonprofit status in 2010. Inspired and came into fruition by Min. Demeatrus Robinson Sr MA, Donpreyel Martin and Greg McGowan to help make a difference in the community in which they lived. Their mission was to fight poverty within impoverish community. Min. Robinson understood that programs driven were needed to finding solutions to internal and external roots of the poverty. After searching the internet search engines and conducted research on food insecurity issues Hunger Free America Corporation was born.
He was touched by the story of a 12-year-old girl named Sarah when her mother lost her job a week before Christmas and the family was on the verge of becoming homeless, unable to pay the rent. She recalls crying and prayed for a miracle from God. Although she was not a Christian by faith. She vividly remembered her mother receiving a phone offering her mother help with food, clothing, and bills. Sara said that it was the best Christmas ever. Today she still volunteers at her local pantry giving back to the community.
Sara story moved Hunger Free America founder into action to serve low-income families while focusing on poverty-related issues. Robinson was skeptical at first about what his neighbors would say about him storing food in his garage. But actually, they were pretty open minded about the idea that he was helping people that were struggling to make ends meet.

"Hears the Cries, of the Hungry"
The bigger picture of Hunger Free America is one that attempts to build up healthy families within the community we serve. While the obstacles that must be faced by residents can be seen as immeasurable, some of the most pressing issues facing individuals today are the outbreaks of poverty, as a result of uncontrollable life circumstances. This is especially evident in underprivileged, low-income populations. Each year the statistics become more disheartening. Hunger Free America was launched in 2010 to tackle and assist low-income families living in poverty. Hunger Free America started from a garage in 2010 serving low-income families who were struggling to meet their basic food necessities.
Hunger Free America was designed to fight poverty head on as a community mobile anti-poverty program to help reverse disturbing trends. Each month the program hosted a free mobile pantry, mobile neighborhood market distributing free groceries with a hot meal and other goods earmarked for needy families.
What is astounding to us is that many of our repeat clients include veterans, working families, undocumented Immigrants and homeless people. In 2011 Hunger Free America was endorsed as a National Anti-poverty Program along with the establishment of the Hunger Free America Institute in Rhode Island by U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein. Senator Feinstein is a pro-advocate for hunger-related causes. Senator Feinstein is an honorable leader for the State of California and America if not the world and is well respected in Washington DC and supported bills that helped her state. Hunger Free America was proud then as they are today to have selected her as an invaluable Consultant to the board for Hunger Free America since 2011. Senator Feinstein is a pro-advocate for California, the Central Valley as well as the nation. We may be one of the first organizations to have an acting U.S. Senator on a Corporate Board of Directors for the betterment of the community.
What is problematic or challenging in San Joaquin Central Valley is that the state was stricken with a statewide drought which has caused an even greater economic hardship to low-income families. Food prices have increased 17% since 2013 and donations are at an all-time low. Please join us to make a difference in a child or needy family life by making a donation or give perishable good to Hunger Free America or Local Food Bank earmarked for Hunger Free America.

Across the United States, a recognizable need has developed for the provision of outreach services for individuals and families. While the obstacles that must be faced by residents can be seen as immeasurable, some of the most pressing issues facing individuals today are the outbreaks of poverty, as a result of uncontrollable life circumstances. This is especially evident in underprivileged, low-income populations. Each year the statistics become more disheartening. Hour of Truth Ministry is devoted to its Hunger Free America programs to reverse these disturbing trends. Today, we are capable of distributing food and other goods as necessary, and the program reaches out to over one hundred different families each month.
The poverty statistics are staggering. According to the Census Bureau, the nation's poverty rate is at its highest level in decades. More than 46 million people one in seven Americans are living below the poverty line, 16.4 million of them children. Another 30 million Americans are just a lost job or serious illness away from joining them. And in the last six years alone, more than 20 million people have joined the ranks of those relying on food stamps to get by. The poverty rate for California 21st Congressional District is 23% a slight change since 2010 with a population of 73,475. The child poverty rate is 30%. This along is staging statistics and no one in Washington DC cares much about the little people facing poverty because they do not pay taxes or their salaries.
The fight these days are for low-income families who cannot afford to pay for the types of services rendered by those capable of delivering them. It’s sad when you see a small child fighting with their older sibling for the last piece of bread, and lose the battle. Poverty is real and up close and in your face reality. The number of people on food stamps has risen above 47 million. Many families are barely getting by on public assistance due to personal or social causation. Therefore let's work together to build lives and a much healthier and stronger nation. Join the hunger cause.
