FAQs

Feeding America delivers more than 4 billion meals each year to people facing hunger in communities across the country and they are continuing to meet the increased need brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. That’s why Run Across America is proud to support Feeding America to help get food and funds to where they’re needed most:

  • Contribute during registration. As you register for the event, you can add an optional contribution to Feeding America to your cart. We also cover the cost of credit card fees so Feeding America gets every penny you intended.
  • We'll double your gift. Every dollar you contribute to Feeding America through our website will be matched by Run Across America.
  • Plus: thanking the heroes. In addition, we're offering free Holiday Hustle registration for the tireless team at Feeding America and their affiliated food banks. You can contribute to this effort to say thanks by donating your shirt during registration.
