About No Kid Hungry
No child should go hungry in America. But 1 in 8 Kids will face hunger this year. No Kid Hungry is ending childhood hunger through effective programs that provide kids with the food they need. This is a problem we know how to solve. No Kid Hungry is a campaign of Share Our Strength, an organization working to end hunger and poverty.
How Can We Do This?
Childhood hunger is a problem we know how to solve. We have plenty of food in this country, and we have effective programs to feed kids. But too many families simply can't access these programs and get the food they need for their kids. With your help, we can fix that. Through donations, advocacy, partnerships and efforts both big and small, we can all Turn Up to support sustainable, long-term solutions to end childhood hunger.

How Can You Help?
It may seem like a daunting number, but together – using the combined power of Warner Bros. Discovery, No Kid Hungry and you – we have already accomplished amazing things. Together, we can create a lasting impact for kids in need. Here are a few ways you can help:
Turn Up Your Donations
One dollar can help connect a hungry child with up to 10 meals.*
Turn Up Your Voice
We can create lasting policy change. Encourage your elected officials to support federal and state programs that put food on the table for hungry children, from school meals to SNAP and WIC.
Turn Up Your Time
We'll help you find volunteer opportunities in your own community, from food banks to meal delivery programs.
*Because of the many unknowns about this pandemic and its aftermath, our standard ‘$1 can provide up to 10 meals’ equivalency may not apply to COVID-19 relief efforts. We are using every dollar to its fullest to maximize the impact you can have right now and all year long.
No Kid Hungry doesn't get a bulk discount on food, as most folks guess. In fact, we don't even buy food. Instead, our approach is all about finding sustainable, permanent solutions to ending childhood hunger in America.
No Kid Hungry does that by supporting school meals programs, providing grants to help people get the equipment they need to feed kids and advocating for better laws and policies.
That's where you come in.
When we carefully invest donor dollars in this work, schools and communities can feed a lot more kids. And we constantly evaluate our strategic investments to ensure we’re maximizing our supporters’ gifts. We’ve been monitoring and analyzing data for these programs for more than a decade, so we know that your support can help provide up to 10 meals for every $1 spent.
Of course, we had to adapt to the challenges of COVID-19, and as we recover from this crisis, we're investing donations where they’ll help kids get the meals they need.
Turn Up To Give
It’s on all of us to ensure every child in America can count on three healthy meals a day, especially as so many families are still struggling in the wake of the pandemic. The good news? Childhood hunger is a solvable problem, but it’s going to take all of us.
*$1 can help provide 10 meals. No Kid Hungry does not provide individual meals; your donations help support programs that feed kids. Learn more at NoKidHungry.org/OneDollar.
