Our Impact

Help for Hunger

Amazon is driven by the belief that no family should go without basic needs like food and housing. As millions of families struggle to secure food for their families, Amazon has a unique role to play providing a critical service for families in need. Through programs like Community Delivery and the Right Now Needs Funds, Amazon has long partnered with organizations that share our commitment.

We invite you to learn more about our partner organizations and share these resources with people who may need the support.

Amazon is helping deliver millions of meals to hundreds of thousands of people as food banks and community organizations face unprecedented demand. Learn more about finding a local food bank.

Since March 2020, Amazon has partnered with local food banks and schools to deliver more than 30 million meals to vulnerable families in over 35 cities worldwide. In the U.S., our food bank partners provide, prepare, and package the groceries. Amazon’s delivery service partners collect the pre-packaged meals of fresh and shelf-stable foods from food banks and community organizations. Our teams then make "contactless" deliveries directly to the homes of vulnerable groups in their communities.

If you or someone you know is experiencing food insecurity, Feeding America can connect you directly with a food bank in your community.

Amazon fights hunger, delivering more than 30 million meals

Amazon donated delivery services for over 30 million meals, in more than 35 U.S. cities and communities around the world.

Children need to show up to school ready to learn. That’s why Amazon launched a school breakfast program by working with Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign in 2017.

Amazon has helped provide more than 15 million meals to more than 103,000 children in 974 schools nationwide. In 2020, the program pivoted to better support children in need during remote learning by providing meals at pick-up locations and along bus routes for families without transportation.

Contact your local school district to learn if your student is eligible for free or reduced-cost meals.

Why breakfast matters

Amazon partners with food assistance organizations across the U.S. to help address the rising rates of food insecurity, including communities around our hometown in the Puget Sound region and in Arlington, Virginia, and Nashville, Tennessee.

In these communities, we have donated more than $2 million in cash to support hunger relief programs directly benefiting children and families, along with in-kind donations equivalent to serving over 30 million meals. Learn more about some of the regional providers.
