FreshJax

Hunger Fight, Inc. is thrilled to announce FreshJax as their legacy partner. FreshJax, a Jacksonville, Florida-based family business that handcrafts organic spice blends, has agreed to a long-term partnership to end childhood hunger.

Hunger Fight recently launched a capital campaign in an effort to raise funds to purchase their own facility to meet the increase in demand for services and fulfill their mission to eradicate childhood hunger and illiteracy. FreshJax, who also has a mission to combat childhood hunger and donates a meal to a hungry child for every gift set or two large spice bottles purchased on their website, has committed to become a top-tier partner in helping to make Hunger Fight’s capital campaign goal a reality.

Our founder, Sherri Porter, has shared how Hunger Fight was established, along with the backpack and illiteracy programs with Tenikka Hughes on Action News Jax.  > Click here to see the interview!
