The Stuffed Strut is a Thanksgiving 5k supercharged by a community of supporters like you - volunteer, fundraise, and activate your networks in the fight against hunger.

By creating your own fundraising campaign, you are helping us address issues of food insecurity and food access. Open Door Café is Southwest Virginia's first donate what you can community café, owned and operated by HOPE, Inc. We provide food insecure households and individuals with access to wholesome and nutritionally appropriate foods in and around Wytheville, VA. Thank you so much for your support. 


Launch Your Zero Hunger Campaign



Tips and Tricks for a Successful Zero Hunger Campaign

  1. Start Small and Close - Kick off your campaign with friends and family. The people closest to you are a great resource to help spread your message and make your campaign more visible.

  2. Share Your Story - Simon Sinek says, "People don't buy what you do, they buy why you do it." Creating your own campaign is an opportunity to share "your why." Share your values and vision for the world you're helping create. Make it personal so that others understand the why and feel inspired to join you.

  3. Employer Matches - If you're creating a workplace teams or activating your coworkers, find out if your employer will create or has an existing matching charitable gift program. Many larger corporations do while small business owners are often open to incentivizing your giving with workplace rewards. Don't be afraid to ask.

  4. Contextualize the Impact - All donations benefit the Open Door Café. Gifts of all sizes add up and make a major collective impact in the fight against hunger. Every $8 gift fully subsidizes one café meal.
