Mission

No child should go hungry in America, but 1 in 5 kids will face hunger this year. Using proven, practical solutions, Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry campaign is ending childhood hunger today by ensuring that kids start the day with a nutritious breakfast and families learn the skills they need to shop and cook on a budget. When we all work together, we can make sure kids get the healthy food they need.
