September is Hunger Action Month and Three Square is challenging Southern Nevada to support a community-wide food and fund drive to raise awareness about the hunger problem in our community. There are more than 271,000 food-insecure individuals in our community who do not always know where their next meal will come from.

Your participation will help Three Square fill a giant 30’ x 30’ plate located in the South Warehouse of the food bank. It’s easy to get involved and you can help Three Square Fill the Plate with food or monetary donations and fundraisers.

Initiate a Virtual Food Drive

Starting a virtual food drive is a convenient and economical way to support fill the plate during Hunger Action Month. This option makes it easy to contribute to the plate without purchasing product from a grocery store, while maximizing Three Square’s exceptional buying power. The equivalent of your monetary donation will be represented on the plate with food.

Please contact Ryan Widdis at 702 644-3663 x317 or at rwiddis@ThreeSquare.org if you are interested in hosting a virtual food drive.

Donate Food

Individuals, businesses and organizations can collect and drop off non-perishable food items directly on the plate throughout the month of September.

Please contact Ryan Widdis at 702 644-3663 x317 or at rwiddis@threesquare.org if you are interested in hosting a food drive.

Donate Funds

Donations can be made online at threesquare.org/filltheplate Every dollar donated provides three meals for our hungry neighbors. Each donation will help Three Square efficiently source the products needed most to end hunger in our community.
