1 in 6 children in the United States face hunger. That number is the inspiration behind our drive to keep making a difference and our commitment to this cause and with your help it really is getting better. Last year that number was 1 in 5.
Williams Sonoma has helped raise over $5.5 million to support No Kid Hungry over the past six years. That translates to 55 million meals where kids live learn, and play, and includes healthy breakfast served to children in schools all across America. This is critical because statistics have shown that children who start the day off with a healthy meal can improve their test scores by up to 20%.
These are changes that will impact our future generations, and I could not be more proud of this work we are doing to end childhood hunger.
Together, we will make a difference in the lives of children in America.
