The Most Delicious Way to Give Back
1 in 5 kids in the U.S. don’t get the food they need – our Georgia statistics are even more grim… with more than 1 in 4 kids at risk of hunger. This takes a terrible toll on their health and development and threatens their futures in profound ways. It also drags down our nation's economy by perpetuating the cycle of poverty.
Childhood hunger is a problem that threatens our children and our future. We’re in danger of losing an entire generation of leaders, innovators and problem-solvers. But we are ending childhood hunger today. No Kid Hungry works to ensure that every child in the United States has access to healthy food where they live, where they learn and where they play – and you can help be a part of the solution.
The No Kid Hungry Atlanta Society is seeking applicants for its 2017 class. Members will help fight to end childhood hunger and will have access to some of the city’s most exclusive culinary events like the Taste of the Nation for No Kid Hungry.
It’s the most delicious way to give back – literally. As a member YOU can directly impact the 1 in 4 kids at risk of hunger in Georgia through the targeted work of Share Our Strength and the No Kid Hungry campaign. Membership is rewarding, fun and easy to fit into a busy work schedule.
