Every year, the holiday season serves as a beautiful reminder of the spirit of giving. This year, it’s our honor and privilege to partner with our friends at No Kid Hungry to give back to a cause that’s close to our hearts.
This year on Giving Tuesday on December 3rd, 25% of our online sales will go towards No Kid Hungry and their mission to end childhood hunger. With 1 in 7 children in the United States living in hunger, No Kid Hungry’s relentless efforts can help make a significant difference. Since the start of the No Kid Hungry campaign, they’ve served over one billion meals to hungry kids across the country.
According to No Kid Hungry, about 11 million children in the United States live in “food insecure” homes or households that don’t have enough food to feed every family member. The effects of childhood hunger are far-reaching, from malnutrition and difficulty in school in the short-term, to the development of unhealthy habits, susceptibility to illnesses and ailments, and continuation of the cycle of poverty in the long-term.
Thankfully, No Kid Hungry is here to make a difference by providing meals during and after school, meals for kids over the summer, and even food skills education to teach families in the community about nutrition and healthy habits. Additionally, No Kid Hungry invests in research and policy to help spread tools that combat hunger and advocate with elected officials to improve programs that kids and families rely on.
