Feeding America Joins Forces With unite4:good as a Founding Affiliate to Enable and Promote Civic Engagement Through Kids Cafe Program

Organizations Dedicated to Fighting Child Hunger in America Commit to Vision of Creating Measurable and Positive Action for Lasting Change

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jan 30, 2014) - Continuing the momentum of its revolutionary global movement for humanity, unite4:good (www.unite4good.org) today announced that Feeding America (www.feedingamerica.org) has joined its organization as a Founding Affiliate. With the common objective of empowering actions of kindness and service and inspiring positive and lasting change, the organizations are working together to ensure that children across the country have access to healthy meals.

"By joining forces with unite4:good, we can assist in the important work of helping individuals identify what they stand for and develop opportunities for them to participate in creating change," said Maura Daly, Chief Development and Communications Officer for Feeding America, the nation's leading hunger-relief organization. "We applaud the unite4:good movement's vision of having goodness, kindness and empathy become the most desirable and celebrated personal traits by everyone, everywhere."

Feeding America is a nationwide network of more than 200 food banks that leads the fight against hunger in the United States. The organization provides food to more than 37 million people through 61,000 food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters in communities across America. Its Kids Cafe program helps alleviate child hunger in America by providing children in need with nutritious meals at times when other resources are not available, such as afterschool or during long holiday breaks. Through the Kids Cafe program, children receive free meals and snacks and are able to participate in educational, recreational and social activities.

Founded by the non-profit Bright Future International (www.BrightFutureInternational.org), philanthropist Anthony Melikhov's unite4:good is establishing a new standard whereby acts of kindness and service become so valued and celebrated that everyone chooses to make them a part of their daily life. The ultimate goal of the unite4:good movement is to convey the inspire:empower:share:love message and inspire positive action to deliver a day when the number of people who want to help outnumber those who need it.

"Partnering with exceptional organizations and programs such as Feeding America and their Kids Café program, allows us to build our Founding Affiliates program into a global platform where like-minded individuals can share their common interest for improving community service outreach," said Mr. Melikhov. "Empowered activism, awareness and contribution between individuals and non-profits will benefit humanity on a global scale."
