NO CHILD SHOULD GO HUNGRY IN NEW YORK

In New York State, 1 in 7 kids struggle with hunger. We are here to change that. 

Every child needs three meals a day to be healthy and thrive. As fierce advocates for children and families, No Kid Hungry is dedicated to bringing together experts, parents, teachers, and our leaders to solve childhood hunger in the United States. 

Our dedicated New York-based team is working to end child hunger throughout the State. We partner with schools, community based organizations, and government agencies to launch and enhance programs providing healthy meals and expanding access to nutritious food.

How We Can Help

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 New York works to ensure that all children have access to the nutrition they need to grow and thrive though the following: 

  • Supporting Schools: We work with school districts, providing trainings, toolkits, and strategic grant funding to launch or enhance existing programs. 
  • Building Community Partnerships: To reach underserved communities with healthy nutrition, we collaborate with community based organizations and support innovative strategies to increase food access for kids. 
  • Advocating for Kids: We engage with elected and government officials to ensure that ending child hunger is prioritized by decision makers at all levels of government in New York State. 
  • Advancing Equity: Childhood hunger is the product of longtime systemic inequities. We prioritize support to underserved communities, seek out and share successful community based solutions, and work to address the root causes of hunger.
