Fighting Child Hunger In The Summer WIth Community Carts

June 27, 2024 / 5 mins read

Food banks play an important role in the community all year, especially during the summer when many children who rely on school meals lose consistent access to nutritious food. This year, the challenges are exacerbated by historic inflation and cuts to SNAP benefits.

Thankfully, supporting children and their families facing hunger is easier than ever.

Instacart's Community Carts, in partnership with Feeding America®, is a tool that lets you donate the exact food items your local food bank needs most. In just a few taps, you can donate to any one of over 100 local Feeding America® partner food banks across the United States, with delivery and service fees waived on every donation. Here’s how:

  1. Select your local food bank on Instacart’s Community Cart hub
  2. Shop from a list of much-needed items selected by that food bank
  3. An Instacart shopper will deliver the items directly to the food bank
