Access

We’re ending childhood hunger by connecting kids to effective nutrition programs like school breakfast and summer meals. This work is accomplished through the No Kid Hungry network, made up of private citizens, government officials,nonprofit organizations, business leaders, and others providing innovative hunger solutions in their communities. These partners work together, implementing solutions that break down the barriers that keep kids from healthy food.

Our Stories

We help children at risk of hunger get a healthy start to their day.

Federal nutrition programs such as the School Breakfast Program protect our kids from hunger. These programs also have long-lasting effects on academic achievement and health. Connecting kids to the School Breakfast Program is a core element of the No Kid Hungry state strategy. Learn more about how school breakfast changes lives.

We are ensuring kids are fed when school is out for the summer.

For many kids, summertime means food, friends and fun. For families who count on school breakfast and lunch, however, the summer months can be stressful and family food budgets have to be stretched even further.

Free summer meals, funded by the USDA, are available to kids and teens ages 18 and under at thousands of summer meals sites across the country but participation is low and the need is higher than ever.
