No child should go hungry in America. Unfortunately, that’s a reality we face in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, as 1 in 4 kids could face hunger this year.
“At La Colombe, we have always taken childhood hunger personally, having seen firsthand the stresses that it brings, and what it means for families affected,” said Todd Carmichael, CEO and Co-Founder of La Colombe Coffee Roasters. “The impact of hunger lasts longer than a meal. It’s an epidemic that sabotages the physical and emotional development of a child.”
Thankfully, partners like No Kid Hungry are doing all they can to make sure the most vulnerable in our community never have an empty stomach. No Kid Hungry works to end childhood hunger by helping launch and improve programs that give all kids the healthy food they need to thrive. For years No Kid Hungry has been doing all they can to gather information and come up with monumental solutions to end childhood hunger in America.
“Over the years, we have been proud to work with No Kid Hungry, and I am especially excited to formally put them on our coffee, and raise funds that we know will go directly to feeding kids who need it the most,” said Carmichael.
Beginning November 4, and running until January 31, $2 of every special-edition Lyon coffee box sold will go to No Kid Hungry and their mission by helping launch and improve programs that give all kids the healthy food they need to thrive. Proceeds from this box can provide up to 20 meals to food insecure children.
As culinary purveyors, we are committed to ensuring no child is food insecure and we are proud to support No Kid Hungry to help eradicate child hunger through financial support and issue awareness.
“We live in extreme times where those in need face challenges we can’t even imagine,” said Carmichael. “But need to do all we can to make sure the most vulnerable and most innocent among us don’t go hungry. We owe it to our community to come together and do all that we can to feed each and every child.”
Let’s make a difference this holiday season by making sure children in our community are taken care of and that they never have to miss a meal again.
