Healthcare Workers vs Hunger

Our History

Dr. Angela Weyand and Dr. Tatiana Prowell began this annual social media-based competition in 2020 to address food insecurity and help those impacted by world hunger. Our team grew in 2021, introducing teenage volunteers to the organization. In 2022, our third year running a competition, we raised more than in 2020 and 2021 combined!

To date, #HCWvsHunger has raised more than $1,600,000 for food banks and hunger organizations! We’ll be back in 2023 to do even better!
