Grateful to Feed Everyone

Giving during Three Square’s Holiday Match Challenge helps feed twice as many hungry members of our community

Did you know that 1 in 6 individuals in Southern Nevada is facing hunger? At the same time, 1 in 4 children lives in a food-insecure household. Thankfully, one organization is on a mission to feed everyone.

Three Square Food Bank is Southern Nevada’s only food bank and largest hunger-relief organization. Three Square currently serves four counties in the Silver State – Clark, Lincoln, Esmeralda, and Nye. Their mission is simple: to provide wholesome food to hungry people, while passionately pursuing a hunger-free community.

Since opening in 2007, Three Square has provided more than 444 million pounds of food to hundreds of thousands of people in need and earned a reputation as one of the country’s most efficient and effective food banks.

Three Square’s 2021 Holiday Match Challenge

This year, Three Square is proud to continue its program, the Holiday Match Challenge. Since its inception, the Holiday Match Challenge has raised more than $4.2 million, equating to nearly 13 million meals. Now in its twelfth year, the Holiday Match Challenge is designed to double the impact in our community throughout the holiday season.

From now through December 31, 2021, any donation will provide twice as many meals with the help of generous matching sponsors.

How does the Holiday Match Challenge work?

During November and December, donations made to Three Square Food Bank will be matched, dollar-for-dollar, by local businesses as part of the 12th annual Holiday Match Challenge. All proceeds will help Three Square provide meals to the record-high number of Southern Nevadans experiencing food insecurity.

Three Square helps feed everyone.

Hunger doesn’t discriminate. Men, women, children, seniors, veterans, and working families struggle every single day. More than 363,000 individuals continue to face hunger in Southern Nevada. Any number higher than zero is too high.

Last year, Three Square distributed more than 58 million meals, which is equivalent to more than 70 million pounds of food. Nonetheless, food insecurity continues to be a problem this year.

How you can help feed our community.

Every $1 donated can provide up to 6 meals for families and individuals in need.

The holiday season is a great time to donate.

Hunger is not seasonal, and more families this year will find themselves with fewer resources to make even a simple meal this holiday season—this is why community support is so vital.

“During this season of gratitude, your gift can create double the impact in our community as generous donors match donations till the end of this year,” said Brian Burton, President and CEO of Three Square. “That creates more food and more hope for the one in six Southern Nevadans who don’t always know where their next meal is coming from; If you are able, we encourage you to join this growing pool of people who give, act, believe, and know that together, we can feed everyone.”

Typically, every dollar donated to Three Square can create three wholesome meals. Thanks to the help of generous sponsors through the Holiday Match Challenge, one dollar can create up to six meals, allowing your gift to make twice the impact during the holiday season.

Get involved by volunteering.

Three Square understands everyone wants to help, but not everyone is in the position to donate. Thankfully, another way to help is by volunteering.

If you are searching for a fun, rewarding experience, Three Square welcomes individuals and groups to volunteer in the pursuit of a hunger-free community.
