Publicize your Hunger Challenge

HSM provides publicity cards and posters – either preprinted or fillable PDF files. You will want to use email, social media, press releases, posters and word of mouth to get the word out. It's all in the Hunger Challenge Tool Box.

Raise the funds

Each nutritious meal costs just 30¢. Each box of 216 meals costs just $65. Roughly, each volunteer who works for two hours will package a complete box of food. Therefore, a basic budget is $65 x the number of volunteers who will work. There are many ways to raise the funds. Download our Fundraising Options document for ideas.

Schedule your volunteers

HSM will set up our customized registration system where volunteers will sign up online to participate in your Hunger Challenge. The system also allows people to donate toward your event. You can track how many people are signed up, send emails, print name tags and check-in lists, and follow up with your volunteers after the event.
