Lynn and Martin Bloom
Friends and partners of Feeding America, Lynn and Martin Bloom started a charitable gift annuity with Feeding America and have generously contributed for more than 20 years to support an end to hunger in America.
"As academics, we study and write about things that many Americans take for granted when others cannot — including the availability of food and access to nutritious items that promote health. No one should go hungry — especially in the world’s richest nation. Everyone living in America should be able to count on a supply of fresh, wholesome, nourishing food.
We donate to Feeding America because it provides food — a fundamental need — to people facing hunger. Through its large network of food banks, Feeding America distributes surplus food to hungry kids, families and seniors, that might otherwise go to waste. Feeding America is the most efficient hunger-relief organization in America, and we are proud to support their work fighting hunger.
As America’s foremost food writer, MFK Fisher says, 'Our three basic needs, for food and security and love, are so mixed and mingled and entwined that we cannot straightly think of one without the others.' We believe food through Feeding America helps provide people with security that reinforces the love that brings about hope for a brighter future."
