Double YOUR Impact on Giving Tuesday

You can help Food Forward recover TWICE as much fresh produce on Tuesday, November 28 by raising funds or donating on Facebook. For one day only, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will be matching up to $2 million raised on Facebook for nonprofits.




Tuesday, November 28 marks the beginning of Food Forward’s End of Year Fundraising campaign! From now until the end of the year, it’s our goal to raise $100,000 to help bring more fresh fruits and vegetables to people in need than ever before. For every $1 you donate, Food Forward will get 11 pounds of produce to our neighbors who need it most.


Want to DOUBLE your impact on Giving Tuesday?


For one day only, November the 28th, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will be matching up to $2 million raised on Facebook for nonprofits. Facebook will also waive its fees!

How can you take advantage of the match and help jumpstart our End of Year Campaign? On Tuesday, simply go to the Food Forward Facebook page, hit the donate button, and make your contribution. It’s that easy!


Consider launching your own Facebook fundraiser. Click here to check out the new page on our Food Forward website to find out how you can create your own fundraiser. In a few short steps, you’ll be set to tell the world how much you care about fighting hunger and food waste!

Be sure to donate early before the match runs out! Donations from 8:00 am EST on November 28 will be matched — up to $50,000 per nonprofit, or $1,000 per fundraiser.

But, wait! There’s more!

If you make a $200 donation on Facebook or mobilize your friends and family to raise $200 or more for your campaign on Giving Tuesday, we’ll send you a free Food Forward Weekender (pictured below). This generously-sized sturdy carryall will tote-ally be your new favorite bag!




Please note! You can only get your free Weekender on Giving Tuesday. After your donation has been made through Facebook or your campaign reaches $200, email Pam Guerra with your name and address. Then we’ll mail you a Weekender!
