Dine Out for No Kid HungryHow This Changes Lives

The goal of  No Kid Hungry is to end childhood hunger in America, which Share Our Strength said consists of over 16 million children.  This is approximately one out of every five.

Childhood hunger has a domino effect throughout a child’s life that can also affect a community. How? Children who suffer from hunger do not do well in school, get sick more often, are less likely to graduate from high school and may be less likely in the future to support themselves or their own family according to a 2013 study on the social impacts of childhood hunger by Deloitte, on behalf of No Kid Hungry.

By participating and raising funds through Dine Out for No Kid Hungry, restaurants help to ensure that all children have access to nutritious food. Learn more on the “Solution” page of the No Kid Hungry website.
