This March, help us BOX OUT HUNGER!

From March 1-31st every Grifols plasma donation center in the U.S. is working together to collect nonperishable food and fundraise for the Feeding America® network of food banks. When you donate funds to Box Out Hunger through March, the J.A. Grifols Foundation will match your donation.

Why now?

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, unemployment and food insecurity soared. In 2020, over 60 million people turned to food banks and community programs for help putting food on the table1.

What is food insecurity?

Food insecurity is a lack of consistent access to enough food for every person in a household to live an active, healthy life. It can be a temporary situation or it can last a long time.

Did you know?

  • Twelve million children face hunger in the U.S
  • During the first year of the pandemic, food banks across the country served 55% more neighbors compared to the prior year.
  • More than 38 million people in the U.S. are food insecure.3
  • You don’t have to be a plasma donor to help!

Last year, thanks to our generous plasma donors, employees, and members of the community, we were able to donate 800,000 pounds worth of food to local hunger-relief nonprofits!

You can help!

To help us in the fight against hunger, bring unexpired, nonperishable food items to your nearest Grifols plasma donation center from March 1-30.
