For over two years, Hunger Free America has been operating the USDA National Hunger Hotline. The hotline is a resource for individuals and families seeking information on how to obtain food. The National Hunger Hotline staff connects callers with emergency food providers in their community, government assistance programs, and various social services.
During summer months, the hotline serves as a vital resource connecting children 18 years old and under at approved sites in areas with significant concentrations of low-income children. To find a summer meals site near you, please click here.
The hotline can be reached at 1-866-3-HUNGRY or 1-877-8-HAMBRE (for Spanish) from Monday through Friday (8 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET).
