Living Hungry is a charity born of the belief that every human has a potential worth nourishing. Poverty setbacks and malnutrition plague our homeless students and at-risk teens worst.Living Hungry is mission to supply quality nutrition to our most vulnerable homeless children and families through fill-the-gap food programs with smart logistics and dynamic solutions and with partners collaborating well. Together we change the story line of our poor and sick local children and their families to unleash the hidden genius of the next generation of Americans.
One big impact of Living Hungry was the successful “War on Hunger” with 4.4 million meals distributed across South Florida by leading 19 agency partners winning the “Collaborative of the Year 2018”. We are most proud to say “Not one homeless child goes hungry in Delray Beach schools”.
Maura Plante is a passionate believer in the power of food to transform the lives of children and people in our community. She founded Living Hungry to nourish come-from-behind homeless children and at risk teenagers living in poverty with quality foods and fresh produce to help them to realize their full potential and live out their dreams. Having witnessed the transformational power of nutrition in the children she feeds, Maura extended Living Hungry’s mission to reach the sick and the poor diabetics using food as medicine in her Healthy Food Prescriptions program and research with Tufts University .
