Children Across America Need Your Help

1 in 6 children across America struggle with hunger. 

We hear stories every day from teachers, community leaders and parents about children who simply don’t have enough food to eat. We need your help to change that.

Not long ago, I heard from a teacher about a favorite student of hers, a sweet-hearted, quiet girl named Amber. One day she looked out the window and saw the girl rooting through the dumpster, pulling out half-eaten lunch bags that other children had discarded. She was so hungry she was willing to risk the shame and humiliation of eating food out of the trash.

We often think hunger doesn’t happen to people we know or exist in our own communities. But there is hunger all around us, even in your state.

The good news: you have the power to help change that when you give to No Kid Hungry today. Help us reach kids like Amber across the country by support No Kid Hungry. The 1 in 6 kids in America who struggle with hunger are counting on you. They’re counting on all of us.

You’ll be helping kids like Amber who had no choice but to go searching for food in a dumpster.

Thank you for being a part of Team No Kid Hungry.
