Share Our Strength's mission is to end hunger and poverty in the U.S. and abroad. We're doing this through our campaigns, like No Kid Hungry, which will end childhood hunger in the United States, and Cooking Matters, which helps low-income families learn to shop and cook healthier. No child deserves to grow up hungry in America. But, 1 in 7 children in the United States lives with hunger. We believe that everyone has a strength to share to help ensure every individual can live a healthy and productive life.
