Taking a Campaign to Scale
The reality is that one in five children in America struggles with hunger. When kids miss out on the food they need, they suffer from more than a lack of nutrition; they face challenges in school, long-term health issues and struggle to live up to their full potential.
Yet, childhood hunger is solvable.
Through its No Kid Hungry campaign, Share Our Strength is working to solve the problem. The No Kid Hungry campaign works to end hunger by connecting kids to effective nutrition programs like school breakfast and summer meals. Through the Cooking Matters program, the campaign educates and empowers low-income families to stretch their food budgets so kids get healthy meals at home. Finally, the campaign works to shed a national spotlight on the issue of childhood hunger in America, creating a powerful movement of individuals committed to bold action.
Since summer 2011, the No Kid Hungry campaign has helped connect kids facing hunger with 34 million additional meals, including 28 million additional school breakfasts and 6 million additional summer meals, and found ways to replicate that success across the country. Additionally, from 2004 to 2008, Share Our Strength raised about $13 million each year. Its 2013 revenue is expected to reach approximately $50 million, representing significant growth in a relatively short time.
