Hunger: Not Impossible

The problem is not insufficient food, it's inefficient access to food.

Run time: 3:07

42 million Americans struggle to put food on the table while 40% of the food produced in the US is thrown away every year. Not Impossible Labs is using text messaging to get meals to those in need.

Hunger: Not Impossible uses a text message-driven platform to address hunger on a geo-specific level by connecting those in need with access to nutritious food sources by connecting community based organizations, local government and the private sector.

The Absurdity

Nearly 50 million Americans live in poverty and struggle with hunger every day. The absurdity about hunger is that we live in the wealthiest country in the world, one in which there is no scarcity of food (in fact 40% of food in America becomes waste), but hunger and food insecurity is prevalent due to poverty.

The Goal

A daily reality in which no child or adult lives in hunger.

The Solution

Hunger: Not Impossible is a for-profit venture with the sole purpose to​ ​end hunger and food insecurity, starting in the United States. Hunger: Not Impossible connects people who are food insecure with stigma-free access to nutritious meals to improve health, well-being and serve as a catalyst for getting out of poverty.

Hunger: Not Impossible launched and operated three initial pilots (Venice, CA; St. Louis, MO; Bentonville, AR). The outcome of these three pilots resulted in Hunger: Not Impossible feeding 12,000+ hunger insecure individuals. Now it’s time to scale!
