Every kid. Healthy food. Every day. That's our promise. And that's how we'll end childhood hunger, by ensuring that no matter the time of day, or time of year, we'll be there for kids. No Kid Hungry connects children in need to programs like school breakfast and summer meals, and teaches low-income families to cook healthy, affordable foods. Working together with local organizations around the country, we generate the will and skill to help communities feed children in need every day of the year.
Feeding Kids Where They Learn
Today, too many kids know what it’s like to open their textbooks with an empty stomach. Studies confirm that when a hungry child eats breakfast, they have better attendance, improve in math, and are more likely to graduate from high school. No Kid Hungry works with schools across the country to make sure every child starts the day with a healthy breakfast.
Feeding Kids Where They Play
Most kids look forward to the carefree days of summer, and can be certain there’s a snack waiting for them at home when they get out of school. But, for the 1 in 5 American children facing hunger, the end of school can be a time of uncertainty. It’s also hard on low-income families, who see already tight budgets stretched and strained. No Kid Hungry works to expand the availability of meals for kids who need them in the summertime and after the school day is over.
Feeding Kids Where They Live
Our signature Cooking Matters program teaches families to shop smarter, make healthier choices and cook delicious, affordable meals. Cooking Matters has been featured by First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let's Move! campaign and recognized by the U.S. Department of Agriculture for excellence in nutrition education. Cooking Matters courses and grocery store tours provide families with the skills they need to maximize their food budgets and put healthy meals on their tables, every day.
Across the country, we’re transforming communities by giving kids the healthy food they need. Working together, we can end childhood hunger in America. No Kid Hungry is a campaign of national anti-hunger organization Share Our Strength. Join us at NoKidHungry.org.
