America’s kids need us.
The coronavirus has closed schools nationwide, and millions of children in need have lost the school meals they depend on.
For many, it’s the only healthy food they get on a given day.
No Kid Hungry has a plan to feed these kids now and in the months ahead. They’re helping schools and community groups find new ways to feed kids in need, and they’re working with federal, state and local lawmakers to support families and children through programs like SNAP.
But they need our help.
Learn more about what they’re doing at NoKidHungry.org, and donate now to help feed hungry kids during this crisis and in the months to come.
In New York City, No Kid Hungry is ensuring that children aren’t forgotten during this crisis. They launched a texting service to connect families with free meals for their kids, and they’re working with city officials and nonprofits to feed children through food banks, schools, shelters and community centers across all five boroughs.
Because of the coronavirus, 1 in 4 kids in the U.S. could face hunger today.
Since the start of the pandemic, No Kid Hungry has granted $65 million to nearly 1,800 schools and organizations across all 50 states, Puerto Rico, the District of Columbia and Guam to help feed hungry children during this crisis.
Every day, kids in need in NYC are missing nearly 850,000 meals at school due to coronavirus closures.
Every day, kids in need nationwide are missing more than 33 million meals at school due to coronavirus closures.
