Fighting Hunger

Contributing to the world's work in the community where we are placed.

As the first women's fraternity to establish a philanthropic focus, Alpha Gamma Delta has a long-standing history of contributing to the world's work.

Through the Annual Fund, the Foundation provides grants to non-profit organizations throughout North America who fight hunger in our communities. This year, we're looking to grant our **one millionth** dollar in the fight against hunger.

Grantable programs may include (but are not limited to):

- local food pantries
- food banks
- meal assistance programs for children, families or seniors
- nutritional education programs related to food assistance

The **Fighting Hunger Grant Fund **supports grants to local community organizations dedicated to fighting hunger.
