No Kid Hungry relies on key partners to enact positive change in Pennsylvania

No Kid Hungry Pennsylvania is a public-private coalition working to ensure no kid will grow up hungry and that every student has access to healthy meals. We are proud to work with others across the state to accomplish this goal.

 

Governor Wolf’s Food Security Partnership

In September 2016, Governor Wolf released Setting the Table: A Blueprint for a Hunger-free PA (link to resource), which set a goal to ensure at least 60% of students who qualify for a free or reduced-price meals would also access the School Breakfast Partnership. No Kid Hungry Pennsylvania is proud to work with the Pennsylvania Department of Education, school districts, and nonprofits to help achieve this goal.

 

Pennsylvania Hunger Action Coalition (PHAC)

No Kid Hungry Pennsylvania is proud to be a member of the Pennsylvania Hunger Action Coalition, a group of anti-hunger, religious, anti-poverty, economic, and other nonprofit groups working to fight hunger and address the underlying policy issues that perpetuate food insecurity.

 

Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank 

Since 2016, No Kid Hungry has partnered with the food bank to expand summer meal access in Southwest Pennsylvania, supporting sites and sponsors to operate the Summer Food Service Program and strengthening program awareness within communities.

 

More than 30 School Districts Across the Commonwealth, and counting
