About Project Bread

Project Bread takes a fresh approach to ending hunger. We believe that the opposite of hungry isn't simply full — it's healthy. And because there's no single face of hunger, we develop multiple solutions that meet people where they are — solutions that provide people of all ages and walks of life with sustainable, reliable access to nutritious food.
