GIVING HUNGER THE BLUES – GENEROSO FOUNDATION (a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization)
Our mission is to feed, nurture and protect the children of Sarasota County. Our goal is to raise funds for our charity partners to help them facilitate the programs that support that mission.
MAYORS FEED THE HUNGRY PROGRAM (a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization)
A contribution to this all-volunteer program means your money goes to feed the hungry! The only administrative expenses are for the production of printed materials and mailing costs. All money collected stays in our communities and is used for food vouchers that are distributed throughout the year by local churches, civic groups and social services agencies.
Mayors Feed the Hungry has distributed 600 tons of food free of charge and over $3.5 million in food gift cards via member organizations. Last year Mayors Feed the Hungry Program provided over 14,000 meals – over 35% went to children, over 16% went to the handicapped and over 15% went to the elderly – however more than 40,000 requests were left unfilled!
We already know the need this year will be even greater because of current economic conditions. Your sponsorship to Giving Hunger the Blues, combined with other contributions, will help feed the hungry in our community!
