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 a healthy school breakfast meal. We are proud to work with others across the state to accomplish this goal.
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 free or reduced price meal 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.
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.
Since 2016, No Kid Hungry has partnered with the food bank to expand summer meal access in the Southwest Pennsylvania, supporting sites and sponsors operate the Summer Food Service Program and strengthening program awareness within communities.
More than 30 School Districts Across the Commonwealth, and counting
No Kid Hungry Pennsylvania has provided more than 45 grants in the last two years to support Pennsylvania schools expand participation in their school breakfast program. Schools have used funding to purchase new equipment, technology, supplies, or craft promotional materials to move their breakfast program into the school day.
