The Feinstein Foundation is dedicated to the alleviation of hunger, the importance of community service in education and the values of caring, compassion and brotherhood. Founded in 1991 by Alan Shawn Feinstein, the foundation is running its 17th annual spring campaign to raise $1 million in the fight against hunger – an effort which GRACE is proud to be a part of.
