WASHINGTON, April 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Millions of vulnerable children have lost the healthy meals they depend on as the coronavirus has closed nearly all schools nationwide. Companies and their customers are mobilizing behind No Kid Hungry, a national campaign to end childhood hunger, by raising funds and awareness to ensure kids get the food they need during school closures and beyond.
"We are incredibly inspired by the outpouring of support and creativity from new and existing partners alike," said Jill Davis, chief revenue officer at Share Our Strength, the organization behind the No Kid Hungry campaign. "They are providing some really fun and impactful ways everyone can help. As many schools remain closed through the end of the school year, the work we are doing to provide meals to children in need is even more pressing. This is what No Kid Hungry does every day, both in times of crisis and not. We remove obstacles to get kids the meals they need."
