Who We Are

NO CHILD SHOULD GO HUNGRY

No Kid Hungry Maryland has been working to end childhood hunger in Maryland since 2008. We work with schools as well as national and local agencies to implement policies surrounding after school, summer, and breakfast meal programs that help hungry kids gain access to nutritious meals.

Share Our Strength

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.
