Our Priority: End child hunger in America

No child should grup up hungry in America, but one in six children struggles with hunger.  Share our Strength's No Kid Hungry Campaign is ending child hunger in America by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need, every day. 

Share Our Strength began in the basement of a rowhouse on Capitol Hill in 1984, in response to the '84-'85 famine in Ethiopia.  Brother and sister Bill and Debbie Shore started the organization with the belief that everyone has a strength to share in the global fight against hunger and poverty, and that in these shared strengths lie sustainable solutions.  Today, we focus these strengths on making No Kid Hungry a reality in America.

We see a future where kids have access to healthy food they need, every day.  Kids will get a healthy breakfast every day at school so they're ready to learn, and they won't have to worry about how they're going to eat when school is out for the summer whne the safety net of school meals isn't available to them.  Rather than feeling the stress of food insecurity, kids will be able to be, well kids.
