Alpha Gamma Delta's philanthropic focus is fighting hunger. We know that food insecurity is a huge problem all around North America and we want to be a part of the solution. Our members get involved with this cause by connecting to their local community partners to volunteer their time to fight against hunger. As a sisterhood, we have the opportunity to work together to make a greater impact.
As part of our support, our philanthropic campaign is called “Full Plates. Hearts. Minds.” We know that hunger is more than not having enough to eat. It impacts behavior, well-being, your ability to focus and much more. When a person is well fed, they are happier and they are able to learn more and focus on work or school. By fighting hunger with these things in mind, we are able to make an impact on not only providing food for those in need, but filling their hearts and minds as well.
As Alpha Gams, we are committed to contributing to the world’s work as our Purpose calls us to do. Members all over the world are giving back and we want to make sure we capture stories that identify with our collective impact.
In 2018-2019, the Fraternity completed 135,547 hours of service.
Alpha Gamma Delta has a Fraternity-wide goal to serve 150,000 hours for fighting hunger as a sisterhood over the 2019-2020 academic year.

- Hours are recorded in the Circle of Excellence Report. Be sure to report your hours to your Philanthropy officer team each month!
- Each time you volunteer throughout the year, fill out this survey.
- If you volunteer at the same organization monthly, don't worry about filling out the survey each month! Keep track on your own and fill it out one time during April/May 2020.

Alpha Gamma Delta partners with Feeding America and Meals on Wheels to advance our efforts of fighting hunger in North America. While members should still plan and participate in fundraising efforts for the Alpha Gamma Delta Foundation, the Fraternity also encourages all sisters to engage in volunteer service activities related to fighting hunger on your campuses and in your communities.
