We have some big (and impactful) news. We’re making some exciting updates to the way we give back, by giving more expansively, and bringing some of our impact closer to home.
We recognize that our continued support of school meal programs in 62 of the poorest countries around the world – thanks to you – is critical to fulfilling our mission of ending global childhood hunger. However, we cannot ignore the fact that childhood hunger is a problem here in America too.
For the first time in history, over half of all public school students in the U.S. are from low-income families, resulting in 22 million children who rely on free or reduced-price lunches every day to get the nutrients they need to learn and succeed. With your support in continuing to buy FEED products, we know we can make a difference here too.
With that in mind, we’re thrilled to introduce you to our new domestic giving partner, No Kid Hungry, a campaign to end childhood hunger, by the national anti-hunger organization, Share our Strength. No Kid Hungry uses practical solutions, such as helping schools launch breakfast and afterschool meal programs, opening new summer meal sites, and providing food skills education, to eradicate childhood hunger in the United States.
From here on out, every FEED product purchased will continue to support school meal programs globally through the UN World Food Programme, as well as provide school meals here in America through No Kid Hungry. As we enter this new chapter in our mission to help feed the world, we invite you to join us in making a tangible difference in the lives of children, both far away and right here in our own neighborhoods.
With these exciting updates to our product give-back, we are proud to continue to partner with our long-standing FEED Supper partner, Feeding America, to provide healthy meals to families and adults through the Supper campaign.
There have never been more opportunities to help our fellow Americans. Whether it’s through wearing your favorite FEED bag, or hosting a FEED Supper, thanks for joining us in making a difference.
