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!
