1 in 4 kids in our country may face hunger this year because of the pandemic. With parents out of work and school cafeterias closed, too many children don’t have the food they need to learn, grow and simply be kids.

When you become a recurring, workplace donor with No Kid Hungry, you’re providing a foundation to help feed these kids. In fact, every $10 you donate can connect a child with up to 100 meals.
