National Community Focus

Fighting Hunger

The WoodmenLife National Community Focus of fighting hunger unites members of the WoodmenLife family, as well as our sales and Home Office associates, to make a difference. WoodmenLife also supports efforts to fight hunger in its corporate giving.

WoodmenLife Fights Hunger With National Community Focus

Events like organizing food drives and stuffing backpacks for schools are an important part of the thousands of community service events WoodmenLife and its members organize each year to support families, give back to communities and celebrate our country.

Building on a long history of giving back and helping others, the WoodmenLife National Community Focus has been actively fighting hunger in local communities across the country since 2015.

Food insecurity in our communities has become more urgent now than ever. Since launching our National Community Focus on fighting hunger in 2015, we are continually inspired by the unwavering dedication of all the members of the WoodmenLife family to this effort!
