Heather Durdil's StoryFood insecurity was a huge issue for me growing up in the late 70s & 80s and some days the only food that I consumed was my free lunch from school. I know firsthand what a barrier an empty stomach can be on a student’s success and I want to help open doors so that no child knows the struggle of an empty belly & pantry.
Knit for Food Knit-a-thon 2023
Sunday from 10:00 AM - 10:00 PM EDT
There is a $100 fundraising minimum to attend the Zoom. Members will be sent a link to the Zoom event on March 25th. Schedule Here: http://www.nelkindesigns.com/index.cfm/page/knitathon/knitathon_23.htm
The Knit for Food Knit-a-thon will take place virtually on March 26th, from 10am-10pm ET. Zoom programming is completely optional! You could stay home on your own, get together with another knitter, or gather with a group of crafty friends at your LYS and stay offline. The choice is completely yours.
Knit for Food Knit-a-thon is a 12 hour knitting
marathon to raise funds and awareness for food insecurity. The money we
raise will be equally divided between Feeding America, World Central
Kitchen, No Kid Hungry, and Meals on Wheels.
In 2021 we, the knitters, raised $265,810!!
In 2022 we raised $271,761!!
That means knitters raised over half a million dollars with our knitting needles!! Can you even believe that?!

To learn more about these organizations:
Feeding America- The Feeding America network is the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization, working to connect people with food and end hunger. Donors, staff, and volunteers all play an important role in our efforts to end hunger in the United States.
World Central Kitchen- WCK uses the power of food to heal communities and strengthen economies through times of crisis and beyond.
No Kid Hungry-
No child should go hungry in a nation as wealthy as ours. But millions
of kids are living with hunger right now because of the pandemic. With
No Kid Hungry, you can help change that for good.
Meals on Wheels- Today, the average life expectancy is at a record high of 79 years. As we get older, even the most independent among us may experience physical declines or financial hardship that strips away our independence. Add to that an increase in geographic mobility of our families, and the result is millions of seniors left behind, hungry and alone. Meals On Wheels is here to help!
