1. To raise the awareness of the community concerning the reality of hunger on a local level, outside of our immediate area, and in the world.
2. To permit and promote the opportunity of gathering food and monetary resources to be used in our own community and beyond.
Project Hunger was first started in 1990 in Hall County, Nebraska, by a group of concerned citizens. They wanted to address the persistent shortages of local food supplies as the Grand Island Community Food Pantry and the famine which was occurring in African countries. In 1991, members were selected for a Board of Directors and they started to diversify their efforts by hosting various annual events and conducting numerous area food drives. to date more than $500,000 in funds and "in kind" services have been received for all purposes. All efforts within the organization are volunteered with no paid personnel.
