Our Work | No Kid Hungry
No child should go hungry in the United States
That’s the promise of the No Kid Hungry campaign. In a country as wealthy and generous as the United States, childhood hunger is a tragedy we cannot accept.
But it’s a problem we know how to solve.
Through our No Kid Hungry campaign, we’ve helped schools and communities across the country feed millions of children. Our strategies and programs work; we’ve seen incredible success, despite the scope of the problem. Far more children today have access to healthy meals programs in their schools and their neighborhoods, thanks in part to our work.

How We're Ending Childhood Hunger
We help communities feed kids, through grants, advocacy and support for schools and families.
School & Community Meals
We help schools and community groups with meals programs, like breakfast served in the classroom or free meals provided at community centers in the summertime.
We help families feed their kids by protecting programs like SNAP and WIC – and increasing the number of children enrolled in them.
Much of our funding goes to provide grants to schools and community groups, which they use to pay for the equipment and staff they need to feed kids.
We advocate for better policies at the federal, state and local level. Legislation is a powerful lever – a new law or new funding for federal meals programs can help millions of children.
“We have so much food in this country, so much wealth and so many resources. Shame on us if we let even one child go hungry.”– Cindy Tinnel, school cafeteria manager, Knoxville, Tenn.
