Per Diems Against Poverty

Fighting for the day when no American goes hungry!

Our Story


Per Diems Against Poverty reallocates donated per diems from individuals and corporations to Americans struggling with food insecurity. In order to do as much good as possible, we partnered with Feeding America shortly after our incorporation in May 2015. Feeding America serves 46.5 million Americans in need, leading the fight against hunger in communities nationwide. Due to their vast resources, Feeding America can distribute nutritionally-balanced meals for as little as ten cents. The average per diem in the United States is $58.50--that’s enough to distribute almost 600 meals to Americans in need!

Per Diems Against Poverty co-founders' upbringing, including grandparents whose memories from the Great Depression and America’s Dust Bowl period were vividly engrained, helped inform Per Diems Against Poverty’s Core Values, particularly those of Frugality and Integrity. All administrative and operational costs are covered by private donations from generous individuals who share our belief that together we can end hunger in America, which means 100% of donated per diems are given to Feeding America.
