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.
Due to the effects of the coronavirus pandemic, more than 50 million people may experience food insecurity in 2020, including a potential 17 million children.
More ways to help
What has Run Across America raised so far?
Since our first event in June 2020, we've raised more than $470,000 for Feeding America. Read more about our impact together so far here.
Can I fundraise with my team?
Today, we're only able to accept contributions to Feeding America at the time of registration. If you would like to fundraise more with your team, you can contribute at feedingamerica.org/runacrossamerica. Note that we're not currently able to track fundraising totals by team with this form.
Does the registration fee go to charity?
For the Spring Start, the registration fee is used to cover all of the costs of producing the event, from creating, printing, and shipping your merchandise to buying enough servers. It's also how we fund the Feeding America contribution matching program described above.
Can I get a tax receipt?
As a social enterprise, Run Across America is unable to provide tax receipts. For a tax receipt, please give directly at feedingamerica.org/runacrossamerica. Thanks for your generosity!
