The $100,000 Challenge to Fight Hunger

The VerStandig Family challenged our communities to raise $100,000 to increase access to food and food resources.

For every dollar donated by individuals, families, community groups, and businesses (up to $100,000), the VerStandig Family matched that dollar, with a goal to raise a total of $200,000 through United Way of Washington & Franklin Counties.

Hear from United Way of Washington County's President & CEO, Heather Guessford, about the importance of this challenge:


Why Address Hunger?

Hunger is a pervasive problem across the United States, and one that carries a significant impact in our local communities. Food insecurity means more than missing a meal. For 1-in-8 families, it often means having to choose between buying groceries or lifesaving medication. The effects can be devastating, from malnourishment to impaired early childhood development and overall poor health. Poor nutrition is a social determinate of health contributing to chronic illness that plagues our communities.

Join Us to Fight Hunger

United Against Hunger raises funds through United Way of Franklin County and United Way of Washington County to benefit local programs that address the most urgent, essential food security needs. These programs feed our neighbors. They provide home delivered meals to seniors, backpacks stuffed with food to help nourish children, fresh food to encourage healthy eating habits, emergency food distribution to help families put food on the table, and so much more.

When we stand United Against Hunger, we address food insecurity to fill more bellies of families and individuals in our diverse communities.
