Help Save Summer for Hungry Kids

The Problem

For some kids, summer is a time of joy and freedom. But for kids who rely on school for regular meals, summer is a time of hunger and anxiety. This isn't a problem affecting only kids in the poorest communities. It affects 22 million children across the country, from suburbs to big cities to small towns. At No Kid Hungry, our goal is to ensure that each child has access to the meals he or she needs every day. Here's how we are solving the problem and how you can help. 

The Solution

The good news is, Summer Meals sites are out there to help feed kids in need in the summertime - and finding the closest one is only a text away! By texting FOOD to 877-877, kids 18 and under and families can find summer meals sites in their area. Spread the word! Text the keyword 'FOOD' to 877-877. 

Take Action

Share the texting keyword on social media, chalk it on the ground outside your school, or even hang these flyers up around your community: Summer Meals Flyer - English & Spanish 

Then tag @GenerationNKH in your post - or snap a picture of where you posted the texting keyword - and send it our way!

If you want to take action all summer long, follow and like us online @GenerationNKH to participate in the #NKHbucketlist challenge!
