It’s something we’ve heard countless time – breakfast is the most important meal of the day. For school-aged children, this is definitely true. It helps kick them into gear and focus on learning.
With the rising costs of everything (it seems) many families struggle to feed their children. I’m not just referring to families at our below the poverty line. The No Kid Hungry® campaign is ending childhood hunger in America by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need on a daily basis.
- By connecting children with effective nutritional programs
- By educating and empowering families to stretch their food budget so their children get healthy meals at home
- By bringing national attention to childhood hunger in America
