It all started when Casidy Sterner was an 8-year old boy volunteering at a food bank with his father, Ewell Sterner. Casidy was naturally confused and upset by what he saw – people hungry and homeless right in his own backyard. He turned to his father and said, “Why is this? We must do more.” Ewell who worked in the hospitality industry, saw an opportunity to connect the food he saw wasted each day with individuals and families suffering from hunger. From there, Hunger at Home was born.
Today, Hunger at Home partners with local convention centers, hotels, and sports stadiums throughout Silicon Valley to collect excess food and goods. This food and goods are then distributed to hungry and homeless individuals through a robust nonprofit network. To date, Hunger at Home has donated 9 million meals locally and helped distribute much needed goods like towels, blankets, kitchen items, and hygiene kits. This effort results in tens of thousands of pounds of excess food diverted from our landfills and ensures the one in four people facing food insecurity in our community do not go hungry.
