Since 2013, I Heart Hungry Kids has been working with volunteers age 5-18 to provide meaningful opportunities for youth service through programs that impact kid hunger issues right here at home. 

A nonprofit founded by Jackson Silverman (then age 7) and his twin brothers Gabe and Riley (then age 5), the boys have been recognized at the local, state, and national levels for their work with youth volunteers in South Carolina — living their motto, “kids helping kids to beat hunger”.



Gabe organizes canned food drives and leads programs that offer kids opportunities to do meaningful hands-on service, learn through teamwork, and promote self-empowerement.


Riley works to reform public policy by raising awareness and funds to address lunch debt and finding solutions for hunger in the school systems.


After years of running our Packing Parties, Jackson is now developing grant programs for youth service initiatives that address food insecurity in communities nationwide.

Through our program Together We Can, I Heart Hungry Kids partners with aid organizations to better understand the communities they support and trains our youth and adult volunteers in how to effectively run year round food drives that address those needs.

We make it easy for Families, Groups, and Businesses to directly impact communities throughout the tri-county, and our programs are designed to fit your schedule.  They can be done in a weekend or run all month – and really make a difference.
