On October 30, 2019, Share Our Strength held its first ever No Kid Hungry Leadership Summit. Activists, philanthropists, teachers, chefs and other thought leaders gathered to collaborate and share best practices in the fight to end childhood hunger. This special episode of Add Passion and Stir features some of the highlights from that day.

“If you want to lead, you have to follow. You have to follow great principles.” – John Miller, President and CEO of Denny’s Corporation
“We have to find a way to connect this abundance of agriculture that we have with the children that need it the most. And that fuels the economy.” – Dorothy McAuliffe, Former first lady of Virginia
“As the mother of a school teacher, it is really important that we are there for our education system because that’s the best way we can look to the future.” – Renee Grisham, philanthropist
“If I’m trying to teach a student who has food insecurity or who hasn’t eaten, it’s like trying to put a roof on a house with no foundation.” – Julie Pittman, Teacher in Rutherford County Schools, North Carolina
