What happened when we gave to No Kid Hungry?
Through our No Kid Hungry holiday gift card campaign between November 27th, 2016 and January 16th, 2017, every $1 donated connected kids in need with 10 healthy meals. So Juice It Up can celebrate donating enough to provide 132,150 meals!
No Kid Hungry has a multi-pronged approach to connecting kids with the nutritious meals they need. Below are some of the many ways your donation will be put to work:
- expanding Summer Meals Sites across the country to fight hunger when school is out of session
- providing technical assistance and support to schools so they can improve kids' access to breakfast
- research and monitoring of our Center for Best Practices
- national and state-level advocacy efforts fighting to put policies in place that improve kids' access to the food they need
- teaching low-income families how to shop and cook nutritious food on a budget through our signature Cooking Matters program
- grants to local organizations fighting hunger on the ground in communities across the country
