How Your Donations Help Kids Affected by Coronavirus

Your support is having a huge impact
Coronavirus continues to keep kids and families from accessing the meals they depend on. But thanks in part to your generosity, No Kid Hungry has provided nearly $4 million in emergency grants to help feed kids in need during this crisis. Thanks for being a Hunger Hero!

Where is the money going?
Our partner No Kid Hungry has provided these emergency grants to help schools and community groups feed kids during this pandemic. These funds have been sent to 147 schools and community groups across 40 states and the District of Columbia. Please visit this page to see the enormous impact you are helping make possible across the country for hungry kids.

We are matching your donations
We have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of help from our Discovery viewers. In just a few short weeks you have helped raise over $100K . Discovery is now matching up to $200K in consumer donations to help ensure kids don’t fall through the cracks during closures and beyond.

Continue to help us support No Kid Hungry’s work to send emergency grants to food banks and local community groups to feed families in the hardest hit communities today and all year long by donating right now.

Turn Up! Fight Hunger is a partnership between Discovery and No Kid Hungry to help provide one billion meals to kids living with hunger in the U.S. over the next five years. Visit TurnUp.org to learn more.

Turn Up To Give

Schools provide critical nutrition for kids, but with schools closing in response to COVID-19, many students are losing access to meals. We have a plan to support them during these closures and beyond – but we need your help.

Donations made through this page support the No Kid Hungry campaign and cannot be designated to a specific location or effort. Your gift will be used where it is needed most. 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.

Thank you for your donation!
