Hunger in America
Every day, tens of millions of men, women and children throughout America struggle with hunger.
Hunger doesn’t just affect individuals and neighborhoods that one might think. Many are hard working adults and seniors who can’t make ends meet and are forced to miss meals. What would you do if faced with the choice between paying for food or paying for medication? Feeding your family or making a mortgage payment?
And hunger in children is more than just about meals. It’s about their future. Studies suggest that children who are hungry do not do as well academically and are more likely to live in poverty as adults. This ultimately impacts every single one of us.

The good news is that we can all be a part of the solution. There are many great organizations and individuals on the front lines of this battle. By supporting them, we can provide food and resources to people and families struggling with hunger.
Elara’s One Case • One Meal Program
One Case • One Meal is Elara’s signature hunger relief program, providing meals in partnership with a local food bank to people struggling with hunger. For each case of Elara products you purchase, we provide a meal to an individual at risk of going hungry.
Elara team members and our families participate in a variety of other hunger relief activities, as well, including volunteering at local food banks, holding food drives and educating our community on issues and solutions related to hunger.
