One in five children in this country struggles with hunger, including more than 700,000 kids in Georgia. The good news is that this is a solvable problem. The No Kid Hungry campaign is ending childhood hunger in this nation by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need every day by connecting them to nutrition programs such as school breakfast and summer meals and by teaching families how to cook healthy, affordable meals at home.

Since the campaign’s launch, No Kid Hungry and its partners have connected kids struggling with hunger with more than 107 million additional meals. The campaign has also empowered more than 1,500 Georgia families with the skills, knowledge and confidence to prepare healthy, affordable meals through Cooking Matters.
