Press Release: The Feinstein Foundation has suspended their 2015 $1Million Challenge until further notice in order to concentrate on its ever-increasing number of Feinstein Jr. Scholars, now over 150,000 strong, pledged to help better the lives of others.

Started in 1998, the annual Feinstein $1 million giveaway to anti-hunger agencies to use as a spur for their fund raising, has generated over $2.5 billion to feed the hungry from thousands of donors throughout the country and overseas. It is likely the largest amount of money ever raised by any grass roots effort to fight hunger.


Last year your monetary and in-kind donations in response to Alan Feinstein’s Challenge totaled $17,000 for United Samaritans Foundation. We need your help to continue to “FIGHT HUNGER” in our community in 2015. This year USF is replacing last year’s challenge with one of our own.

United Samaritans Foundation challenges the community to match or increase your last year’s donation during the month of March and April 2015 to “FIGHT HUNGER”.

All food and dollar contributions you provide will benefit those in need within our community. Please continue to give so that we may continue to serve. Help to “FIGHT HUNGER” in our community. Please, when making your donations indicate that it is for the Fight Hunger Challenge. If you would like to conduct a canned food drive for the “FIGHT HUNGER CHALLENGE” at your school or place of business, please contact Maris or Esther at 209-668-4853 for assistance.

Thank you for your help in the fight against hunger.

Hunger and Homelessness in California

4.3 Million people experience hunger each year in
California, and an estimated 350,000 are homeless.
Today, 4.6 million Californians, including
1.8 million children live in poverty.
A recent study of 75 food and shelter providers in
California shows the situation is getting worse.
