Provide "A Different Kind of Healing" to Seriously Ill Children and Their Families

Blog

At nine years old, Jaxson was an avid fisher who loved to ride his bike.

Every Kid. Healthy Food. Every Day. Here's What Your Dollars Can Do to Help No Kid Hungry Make This Possible.

Blog

“$1 can provide up to 10 meals for hungry kids.”

That’s a statement you’ll often see from the No Kid Hungry campaign, and I’m frequently asked how we make such an incredible return on each dollar.

Blog

When the issue of childhood hunger is discussed, people usually imagine impoverished children in developing countries. But the truth of the matter is millions of children in America face food-insecurity.

Yet somehow, the issue of hunger in America has gone largely undetected.

Blog

Each year 27,000 children in the United States are diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. For these children, simple surprises and joys of life are eclipsed by doctors’ visits, hospital stays, medical tests and treatments. The lives of their family members shift to a place of fear and stress. The desire to preserve limited childhood years and creating new memories as a family can seem daunting.
