Greater Good Charities and Actor Chris Pratt Raise Funds for Feed Thy Neighbor Initiative

| February 7, 2021 | 0 Comments

Greater Good Charities and actor Chris Pratt award nearly $650,000 after successful Feed Thy Neighbor initiative to combat food insecurity across the U.S. that has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Hunger Site by GreaterGood and 12 Tomatoes covered all credit card processing fees so that 100 percent of every dollar given helps, and Greater Good Charities granted out 100% of the funding received.

“Feed Thy Neighbor was created as a result of the dual crisis effecting those trying to battle food insecurity that was caused by the coronavirus pandemic,” said Liz Baker, CEO of Greater Good Charities. “First there is a meal shortage for food banks serving our most vulnerable; meanwhile, these same frontline groups are experiencing a decline in donations.”

Feed Thy Neighbor was conceptualized by Chris Pratt and made possible by The Hunger Site by GreaterGood, 12 Tomatoes, and Greater Good Charities. Pratt donated $100,000 in matching funds and encouraged people to donate for a chance to meet him via Zoom as well as hosted a star-studded New Year’s Eve Instagram Live that included Robert Downey Jr., Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jamie Foxx and Bryce Dallas Howard.

“One in four kids in America this year may not know where their next meal is coming from,” said actor Chris Pratt.“ The need is real. People are in pain.”

Half of all donations received from the Feed Thy Neighbor campaign went to Feeding America® to help address the meal shortage that is hitting our nation’s food banks. The other half are provided as cash grants to front line hunger relief organizations in areas hardest hit by the economic impacts of COVID-19 to ensure they are able to sustain their operations to help people who need it most.
