A letter from Share Our Strength's Founder, Billy Shore
To our No Kid Hungry family:
Thank you for supporting our work to end childhood hunger in America. No child should grow up hungry, yet 1 in 6 U.S. children will struggle with hunger this year. In Georgia alone, more than 700,500 children can’t always count on regular meals. By becoming a member of the No Kid Hungry Atlanta Society, you are joining No Kid Hungry in saying we can solve this problem – kids don’t have to go hungry in America.
Using proven, practical solutions, No Kid Hungry is ending childhood hunger by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need every day. With your help, we’re ensuring that kids start the day with a nutritious breakfast and families learn the skills they need to shop and cook on a budget. We’re achieving major milestones across the country and right here in Georgia.
Since the campaign’s launch, No Kid Hungry and our partners have connected kids struggling with hunger with more than 775 million meals. Only 17% of kids who qualify for free/reduced lunch are also getting summer meals. We’ve worked to ensure that kids struggling with hunger in the summer can find a free, healthy meal at over 3,000 sites across the state.
We’re honored to have you join us to learn more about our progress and our vision of a future where no child struggles with hunger.
Our work would not be possible without the support of all of you. Together, we can make No Kid Hungry a reality.
