Feeding America is proud to have been selected as a beneficiary of Idol Gives Back this year.
In April, Idol Gives Back, the historic Emmy Award-winning television event and music celebration, returned for its third year on FOX. This star-studded fundraiser and television event once again called the world to action. The brainchild of American Idol creator Simon Fuller, Idol Gives Back began in 2007 as a way for those behind American Idol to "give back" by raising money to serve children and their families in need throughout the U.S. and the rest of the world. In 2008, the Idol Gives Back Foundation (IGBF) was established by the producers of American Idol and the Fox Broadcasting Company, to fulfill this goal.
