Help Spark Global Change Through “Art-ivism”: Join the Students Rebuild World Needs Challenge

Here at No Kid Hungry, we believe that young people have the power to shape what the future will look like.

Currently, 1 in 6 kids is at risk of hunger in America. Even with schools starting to open up again, there are still many kids and teens unable to get the school meals they depend on. Young people and their families can take the World Needs Challenge and help us end childhood hunger for good.

Take the World Needs Challenge

This year, Students Rebuild, a Bezos Family Foundation program, has launched a new campaign called the World Needs Challenge!

We’re asking young people to create art to support some of the greatest needs in our global community today. Students can then become “art-ivists” by designing posters, buttons or pennants to amplify the messages and issues they care about.

Each piece of artwork submitted, the Bezos Family Foundation will make a $5 donation–up to $2.5 million–to partners like the No Kid Hungry campaign, who are addressing some of our world’s biggest needs.

Learn more about the World Needs Challenge and register to participate before the Challenge ends on June 3, 2022.

Use Your Art to Thank a Hunger Hero

If you need an idea of the art you can create, think of our hunger heroes.

Cafeteria workers, teachers and others continue to be on the ground feeding kids nationwide during this crisis.

Without them, many children wouldn’t get to eat.

Draw a picture or design a poster to show your gratitude for these heroes. Along with submitting your art, you can also post it on social media using #thankahungerhero. Tag @nokidhungry, and we'll share it in our social channels.
