Welcome to the new No Kid Hungry Allies!

Share Our Strength officially launched the No Kid Hungry Allies Program in June. With 13 Allies in 12 states across the country, this milestone marks an important growth of the No Kid Hungry campaign’s national footprint.

The No Kid Hungry Allies program engages communities across the nation to end childhood hunger by surrounding kids with healthy food where they live, learn and play. Allies are committed to making the No Kid Hungry campaign model work in their state. This means bringing together elected officials, corporations, government agencies and nonprofits to connect kids to federal child nutrition programs.

With the USDA Under Secretary Kevin Concannon, celebrity chef John Currence, and Executive Director of the Arby’s Foundation Kate Atwood, the No Kid Hungry Allies officially joined the Share Our Strength team—a step that highlighted the organizations as they continue their important work to connect kids with food around the country.

Here at Share Our Strength, we are so excited to have this group of 13 amazing Allies coming on board. They are working on everything from launching a Hispanic Outreach Group to better understand how to communicate food bank services to the Latino community in Nevada to establishing five new after school supper sites in Massachusetts. Our Allies are working on increasing participation in summer meals, school breakfast, after school meals, and SNAP in states from Maine to Oregon and Pennsylvania to Alabama. We couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome such a diverse, dedicated group of organizations to the No Kid Hungry campaign.

The addition of these Allies means that team No Kid Hungry is getting even bigger! And with the Dine Out For No Kid Hungry fundraising event happening this September, restaurants around the nation can join these Allies and other No Kid Hungry team members.
