By Share Our Strength (No Kid Hungry) on October 5, 2016
Join America's Charities, now through December, as we highlight different nonprofits and share how individuals and companies can Shape the Future of various causes through workplace giving programs.
No child should grow up hungry in America, but one in five children struggles with hunger. Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry campaign is ending childhood hunger in this nation by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need, every day.
The No Kid Hungry campaign connects kids in need with nutritious food and teaches their families how to cook healthy, affordable meals. By doing this, we surround children in this nation with healthy food where they live, learn and play.
We're ending childhood hunger by connecting kids to effective nutrition programs like school breakfast and summer meals:

Eliminating Barriers Through Public-Private Partnerships:
This work is accomplished through the No Kid Hungry network, made up of private citizens, public officials, nonprofits, business leaders and others providing innovative hunger solutions in their communities. These public-private partnerships work together to identify and eliminate the barriers that may prevent children from accessing existing food and nutrition resources. Through its Cooking Matters program, the No Kid Hungry campaign educates and empowers low-income families to stretch their food budgets so their kids get healthy meals at home. Cooking Matters participants learn to shop smarter, use nutrition information to make healthier food choices, and cook delicious, affordable meals.
The No Kid Hungry campaign also engages the public to make ending childhood hunger a national priority, working to shine the spotlight on the crisis and mobilize a powerful movement of individuals committed to bold action. We build partnerships that enlist influential individuals in the cause and advocate policy changes needed to achieve our goals. The No Kid Hungry campaign is supported by unique programs that raise critical funds and allow our champions to share their strengths in the battle to end childhood hunger. Working closely with the culinary community and relying on the strength of its volunteers, No Kid Hungry hosts innovative culinary fundraising events and develops pioneering cause marketing campaigns that support ending childhood hunger. This work also allows us to invest in community organizations effectively fighting hunger on the local level.
Together, we are making No Kid Hungry a reality in America. To join us, visit NoKidHungry.org.
