What can you accomplish when you're hungry?
No child in America should grow up hungry. But too many kids in our country don't have the food they need to thrive.
I'm helping end childhood hunger in America by supporting the No Kid Hungry campaign. No Kid Hungry is connecting kids all across the country with healthy food where they live, learn and play.
21 million kids rely on free or discounted lunches for their nutritional needs during the day, yet only 11 million kids receive free or reduced breakfasts. It's not due to a lack of need, that's for sure. And just imagine how ineffective your work is when you're hungry. Speaking for myself it's poor, my mind wanders and it's not too long before I'm searching for cat videos online.
Kids in school can't do that. When their minds wander due to hunger they act out, tune out and don't get the education that they need for the long haul.
In Georgia 1 in 4 kids struggle with hunger. Only 58% of kids that qualify for lunch assistance are also getting breakfast and only 15% of those that qualify are getting assistance during the summer.
Every $1 you donate can help connect a child with up to 10 meals.
No kid in this country should grow up hungry.
