There IS a solution.

ADVOCATE

Create awareness for food and nutrition programs that are already in place throughout the community.


EDUCATE

Empower and educate low-income families to stretch their food budgets so their kids get healthy meals at home. Families will learn to shop strategically, use nutrition information to make healthier food choices, and cook delicious, affordable meals.


DONATE

Set up easy-to-get-to stations where the community can donate funds to organizations committed to the cause. Form partnerships with these organizations to help tackle the issue of childhood hunger.
