At No Kid Hungry, that’s our promise. If it sounds simple, that’s because it is.
That doesn’t mean ending childhood hunger is easy. We know what works, and we’ve made extraordinary progress for kids and families.
But the job isn’t done and won’t be done until we’ve met that promise and every single child in America has the food they need to grow up healthy and strong.
There is no possible excuse for children to go hungry in this country. Yet it happens – every day, in every community.
More than 19% of children in Indiana live in “food insecure” homes. That phrase may sound mild, but it means that those households don’t have enough food for every family member to lead a healthy life.
We have plenty of food in the United States. And we have child hunger relief programs that work. The problem is that not enough kids can access them. That’s a problem we know how to solve.
Together with our partners, No Kid Hungry Indiana works to ensure all children have access to the nutrition they need to grow and thrive. Our work focuses on ensuring more Hoosier students have the nutritious meals they need to thrive in Indiana.
No Kid Hungry is a national campaign run by Share Our Strength, a nonprofit working to solve problems of hunger and poverty in the United States and around the world. After 25 years of successfully investing in local nonprofits and helping find the best approaches to eradicating poverty and hunger, Share Our Strength launched No Kid Hungry in 2010.
As a child hunger organization, ending childhood hunger is our primary focus, though Share Our Strength continues to invest in and develop other campaigns.
