In observance of the federally-recognized September 11 National Day of Service and Remembrance, known as “9/11 Day,” the federal agency AmeriCorps and MyGoodDeed, the nonprofit that founded 9/11 Day, are inviting qualified college and university organizations to apply for special grant funding to help them organize campus volunteer service activities, focused on hunger relief, in observance of 9/11 Day in 2023. 

The goal of these projects is to inspire more than 2,500 STUDENTS, plus faculty members and administrators, to (a) learn about 9/11 Day, and (b) join together to pay tribute on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks by packing as many as ONE MILLION healthy, non-perishable meals for individuals on campus and in the local community who are at risk of hunger.

This special program is being organized in partnership with The Pack Shack’s Feed the Funnel program.

Successful and qualified applications will receive “seed” funding to help create, organize, promote and implement their own Feed the Funnel for 9/11 Day event. Online training, meal packing equipment, food supplies and other resources will be provided. 

Meals packed on campuses will be distributed to local organizations within those respective communities, as chosen by the colleges.
