Story

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?!

There are two ways to support the Knit-a-thon: You can sign up to knit/craft for 12 hours OR you can donate!
To sign up, simply click the JOIN THE KNIT-A-THON button, set up a profile and start fundraising!
To donate just click the DONATE button.

A Zoom link will be sent to participants who raise $100 or more before March 26th.

Thanks so much for supporting our effort to craft a better future.

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!
