Adequate nutrition and clean water is essential for all human life. No one can survive for long without it. Yet, hunger remains near the top of societal problems in America. In fact, 38.3 million people live in food-insecure households according to the USDA. Fortunately, we have feeding programs to help address some of this need.

Thanks to social media, reaching potential donors for a food drive is easier than ever. However, what you’ll still need an emotionally impactful caption to cut through the noise. With that in mind, I’ve compiled a long list of captions and quotes designed to increase donations.
