No Kid Hungry ensures every child has healthy food every day.
The No Kid Hungry Kentucky campaign is a partnership between Share Our Strength’ and Kentucky Association of Food Banks committed to ending childhood hunger in Kentucky by ensuring kids get the food they need.
Together with the Kentucky Department of Education, state leaders and community partners, we work to end child hunger in the Commonwealth by increasing awareness and participation in the School Breakfast Program, the Community Eligibility Provision, the Summer Meals Program, and the At-Risk Afterschool Meals Program.
Many Kentucky families are struggling to meet the basic household needs – more than 68% of SNAP participants in Kentucky are families with children. (What does food stamps (SNAP) have to do with it?) For 1 in 5 Kentucky kids, meals served through these programs may be the most consistent nutritious meals they receive.
