Volunteer to Stop Child Hunger in the United States

Volunteer to Stop Child Hunger in the United States

Becoming educated on child hunger in the United States is the first step towards finding a solution. The facts will surprise you. Hunger exists in every community and can affect families of any demographic. Use these resources to educate yourself and community members of all ages on where hunger strikes, how often, and what factors contribute to hunger. You can also find the food banks and action centers taking steps against hunger in your community so you can join in the fight. Together, we can do better.

In the photograph above, we used MyPlate to plan for our donation.
*If foods are going to a food bank, use only shelf-stable items. A shelf-stable food requires no refrigeration.

You may want to make a food basket for a family in your community. Knowing the food will be given to a family right away will allow you to include fresh fruits and vegetables.

Use of any specific brand of food is not an endorsement.
