Our Work | CHANGING THE STORY
Changing the Story About Kids and Families
Much of our work at Share Our Strength concerns school meals and other government programs that help kids – the grants, expertise and support we provide to communities across the country.
But the best programs in the world won’t be successful without public support. What do Americans think about childhood hunger? What causes it? What does it feel like when it happens to your family? And what should be done?
To help change the story about hunger and poverty, we invest in marketing, communications and fundraising to help Americans understand the challenges that our communities are facing – and support effective solutions.
That can take many forms: sending an email to your senator, sharing a post on social media, attending an event – or simply donating to support our work. Because people who donate to a cause aren’t just providing critical funding. They’re making a statement about their own beliefs and values: “This matters to me. I want to help.”
That’s where lasting change comes from.
