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 are able to access them. That’s a problem we know how to solve. Together, with our partners, No Kid Hungry Maryland works to ensure all children have access to the nutrition they need to grow and thrive.
