Approximately 69% ‐ $29.24 million ‐ of these expenses were invested in No Kid Hungry programming to feed kids where they live, learn and play. Our successes in ending childhood hunger nationwide are made possible thanks to judicious investments in fundraising, which make up 23% of our expenses. In order to end childhood hunger in this country, solutions need to be scaled quickly, and our spending on fundraising reflects the urgent need to expand our work to reach as many kids as quickly as possible. The remaining 8% of overhead expenses cover costs such as general and financial management, human resources and technology.
These investments contributed to more than 460 million meals being served to hungry kids across America – and many other milestones.
