What our organization does:
Share Our Strength®, a national nonprofit, is ending childhood hunger in America by connecting children with the nutritious food they need to lead healthy, active lives. Through its No Kid Hungry® campaign, Share Our Strength ensures children in need are enrolled in federal nutrition programs; invests in community organizations fighting hunger; teaches families how to cook healthy, affordable meals; and builds public-private partnerships to end childhood hunger, at the state and city level.
Headquartered in Washington DC, with satellite offices in Baltimore, Boston and Colorado, and staff and supporters nationwide, Share Our Strength’s work helps connect children throughout the US with healthy meals year round.
When do we need help most?
Though more than 21 million kids get free and reduced price school lunch, just over 3 million get free meals in the summer. This means over 17 million kids will face long days and hunger pangs this summer. Plus, without nutritious food, these children can lose much of the academic progress they made during the school year.
That is why the No Kid Hungry campaign is undertaking its largest effort to date to connect more kids than ever before to summer meals programs across the country – and help them access the food they need.
