Fall No Kid Hungry Job Post

Sep 27, 2018

No child should grow up hungry in America, but one in five children struggles with hunger. That’s more than 16 million kids. Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign is ending childhood hunger in this nation by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need, every day.

By connecting kids in need with nutritious food, the No Kid Hungry campaign surrounds children with healthy food where they live, learn and play.

We’re ending childhood hunger by connecting kids to effective nutrition programs like school breakfast and summer meals. This work is accomplished through the No Kid Hungry network, made up of private citizens, public officials, nonprofits, business leaders and others providing innovative hunger solutions in their communities. These public-private partnerships work together to identify and eliminate the barriers that may prevent children from accessing existing food and nutrition resources.

Through the support of the Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation, Share Our Strength has created a program to involve college-aged Youth Ambassadors in the fight against childhood hunger by working with one of our state No Kid Hungry community partners.

For the fall program, Hunger Task Force will host one (1) Youth Ambassador working on initiatives related to school breakfast and potentially other Federal Child Nutrition programs (after-school meals, Summer Meals, etc.).
