Share our Strength

Share Our Strength's mission is to end hunger and poverty in the U.S. and abroad.

We believe everyone has a strength to share and we try to mobilize people. We demand a diversity of ideas, people and communities, which leads to stronger solutions. We believe in always being inventive – trying new things and challenging the status quo. Last but not least, we value doing good work and have a good time while we’re at it.
