Share Our Strength, the organization that runs the No Kid Hungry campaign, is a nonprofit that relies on the financial support of ordinary Americans - as well as companies, restaurants and charitable foundations - to feed children.
Your support helps ensure that every child gets three healthy meals every day.
In our 2021 fiscal year, Share Our Strength raised $145 million (total revenue) and spent $136 million (total expenses). Our fiscal year runs from July 1 to June 30.
How Your Support Feeds Kids
In our 2021 fiscal year, our total expenses were $136 million. We spent 83% of that on programmatic work. That includes grants to schools to help them buy supplies and equipment; staff working on the ground in communities across the country; awareness campaigns that help families find meals; research and funding for pilot projects; food skills education; and advocacy work to push for federal, state and local laws that help feed more kids.
The rest goes toward fundraising (12%) and management and general activities (5%). These expenses provide critical support for our mission. We’re able to help feed so many kids because we have a staff dedicated to fundraising, communications, technical support and other important needs.
Our goal is to make sure no child in America goes hungry, and that takes more than just food - it takes funding, infrastructure and a dedicated team of people.
Where the Money Comes From
The work of No Kid Hungry is funded in many ways. From donations made by ordinary people to gifts from charitable foundations to the support of companies large and small. Relying on a wide range of funding sources means we’re able to grow and support more schools and community groups feeding kids.
In our 2021 fiscal year, our total revenues were $145 million.

Share Our Strength is committed to efficiency and transparency. In applying the accounting standards from the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) related to joint costs of informational materials and activities that include a fundraising appeal, Share Our Strength identified activities as program, management and general, and fundraising in the following categories: a) education and awareness about hunger and food insecurity and b) volunteer recruitment, mobilization and management. Taste of the Nation, No Kid Hungry Dinners, Chefs Cycle, and the like as well as direct mail/email communications are platforms or vehicles used to accomplish one or more of the goals defined above (education and awareness, volunteers).
As such, the activities performed for each platform may be program-specific, fundraising, management and general, or joint (i.e., a combination of fundraising and program). These efforts help advance our mission to end hunger and poverty in the U.S. and abroad.
As a nonprofit organization that is exempt from federal taxation, we ensure our donors’ money is spent as efficiently and effectively as possible.
