1 million meals and counting! Let's feed as many families as we can.



Child hunger is a big problem in America. And we have a big goal to help tackle it. We are working together to raise 1 million meals for kids in communities across the United States - in just 6 weeks.

Every action you take helps us reach our goal. Plant a community garden, organize a food drive, or host an event that will get more and more people involved in the fight against child hunger.

1,424,061 meals

1 million meals and counting!

Let's feed as many families as we can!

Tell us about it! Did you build a table? Write a blog? Plant a community garden? Organize a food drive? Or volunteer at your local food bank?

Every action matters in the fight against child hunger, and every action will feed more kids and families. When you report action, our campaign partners will match your efforts to generate a meal for a child in need.

A Really Important Message for Kids and Teens.

There are nearly 17 million kids in the United States who experience hunger at any given time throughout the year. That’s more than the populations of New York, Chicago and Los Angeles – America’s three largest cities – combined. We can do better. Let’s be the generation that solves America’s child hunger problem. What will you bring to the table?
