Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry Campaign



This week (March 4 - 8, 2013) is National School Breakfast Week. To bring awareness to this very important week and issue, mom bloggers are raising awareness about child hunger right here in the United States. It's not just a developing world issue, it's a domestic issue, too.

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 America by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need, every day. 


The No Kid Hungry campaign connects kids in need to effective nutrition programs like school breakfast and summer meals and teaches low-income families to cook healthy, affordable meals through Cooking Matters.  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. Join us at NoKidHungry.org.

  1. This is such a wonderful campaign! My hubby teaches at a inner city charter school where more than 50% of the kids are low-income. We often have conversations about how his kids come to lunch with 20 oz. sodas, Hot Fries, and other unhealthy menu items. The good thing is that his school is working on banning fast food lunches and the aforementioned items during meal time. It would be great if we could get the information about Cooking Matters out to the parents at my husband's school (and other inner city schools in Atlanta).

  3. Hi. I am involved with an organization that is like yours. It is very new. It basically gets healthy food into the hands of the needy. Thousands of pounds of food weekly, all run by volunteers. But, it is getting hard as there are a few individuals who shoulder 60 hours of intensive work a week, and are not getting paid anything, and are using precious resources they have to make it work. It cannot last. What would you suggest in getting these few leaders an income to allow this wonderful program to continue? I am very naïve. Please give me some direction. Thanks.Linda from Long Island
