We need to fight child hunger! Did you know that 1 in 5 children don’t know where their next meal will come from throughout the year? That means 15 million children are lacking proper nutrition they need to thrive. A balanced and nutritious diet is crucial for a child’s physical growth and brain development to help them reach their full potentiality. The amount of children that live in poverty is staggering as is. Sadly, child poverty is continuously on the rise.
This is Why We Need to Fight Child Hunger in America
Poverty, homelessness, and hunger have always tugged at my heartstrings, especially when children are involved. Our children are our future. The least thing we can do for them is help them reach their full potential. Break the cycle of poverty by giving back. That’s why my heart jumps in joy and happiness when there are programs out there like Child Hunger Ends Here. Child Hunger Ends Here are striving to make a difference in childrens’ lives by campaigning to eradicate hunger.
How You Can Make a Difference
The digital age that we live in has made it easier than ever to help break the cycle of poverty.

As an educator, this is the number one problem I fought for 25 years. I don’t know why, in this time and place, that we haven’t conquered this.
I love kid president and I love this initiative!!! Feeding hungry kids is one of my passions. I can’t wait to share this.
Very helpful article. Childhood hunger just isn’t fair and I know almost anybody would help out with this issue if they could!
Love PF Changs food. Good to know how they give back to help childhood hunger.
Fabulous initiative by ConAgra! I try to explain this to my kids, but they really just don’t understand that there are children who simply do not have food availalbe at times in their homes..
What a great cause to stand behind. There are a lot of charities right here in the US that people don’t know about. Thanks for sharing.
It’s so sad that in this rich country we still have to worry about 1/5 of children going hungry. Thanks so much for sharing knowledge about this important issue.
All right, Kid President! I absolutely love that kid and I adore this mission to end childhood hunger. No child should ever have to go hungry!!!
such a sobering post – but one with great importance! Thank you for sharing!
It always makes me so sad to know that so many kids are hungry! What a wonderful post raising awareness!
It really shocked me at the stats just recently. In this day and age I personally think that there should be no hungry children but it exists and I wish it didn’t. I’ll certainly share and do my part to help.

I always buy the foods with the meals codes. I think it is a simple way to hopefully help others out. Will share. 🙂
It really is shocking how many kids go to bed hungry each day in the US! It’s vital to become involved, even in a small way, in helping the poverty issues in this country if we hope to change the future.

Ughhhh it truly breaks my heart thinking about all the hungry kids out there. I really wish i could help them all! Thanks for bringing awareness
I just love that Kid President – he’s so amazing. Thanks so much for sharing this important information on childhood hunger and poverty. There’s no reason a child in the US should go to bed hungry.
I am all for doing what we can to help all the children in our country. Kudos to Con Agra for this initiative. No child should be hungry!
This is such an important thing to shed light on. I don’t think people realize how often the children they interact with every day are food insecure. Great info!

Wow! Sometimes you just really don’t know what people go through. I hope we end this problem.
Whenever I think of a child going to bed without food my heart pains me. There is too much food in the world for any child to be hungry….sigh
