How you can help Puerto Rico

Food banks across the U.S. are coordinating to provide relief to the millions of people in Puerto Rico who have lost access to food and water in the wake of Hurricane Maria.

The storm has knocked out power to much of the island and cut off access to food, water and fuel for many of the 3.4 million people living in Puerto Rico.

How to help

The Food Bank of Puerto Rico is asking for financial donations as the best form of support. You can donate directly to the Food Bank of Puerto Rico (opening this page in Google Chrome will automatically translate to English) or to Feeding America, our national network of food banks, which is coordinating relief for those affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria.

Feeding America is also providing updates on its Hurricane Maria relief efforts through its Hunger Blog and social media platforms.

Additional ways to help

  • The American Red Cross is accepting donations online, by phone, at 1-800-RED CROSS or by texting MARIA to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
  • Unicef USA has created a Hurricane-Maria specific donation page to provide Emergency Relief kits to the children of Puerto Rico.
  • GoFundMe has created a page with all its Hurricane Maria-related campaigns.

Relief efforts for those affected by Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma are still ongoing. You can learn more about how our national network of food banks is helping provide basic needs—and what you can do to help—by reading our previous blog post and one from Feeding America.
