Feeding America 

 

Feeding America is a nonprofit with a mission to feed America’s hungry through a nationwide network of 200-member food banks and engage the country in the fight to end hunger. What began in 1979 as a clearinghouse for national food donations is now the nation’s largest domestic hunger relief organization. Forbes ranks it as the second largest U.S. charity by revenue.

“We’re connecting our food banks through Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services so we can make better decisions about how to help ensure that people get enough to eat while also rescuing safe, nutritious food that would otherwise go to waste.”

— James Broniarczyk, Director, Solution Architecture & Development, Feeding America
