No Kid Hungry: A Follow-Up

And a follow-up to the last post:

Watch Principal McElhaney’s firsthand view of hunger in the classroom and share it with everyone you know.

Dear Friend,

Millions of America’s children head back to school this month where they’ll focus on reading, math, history and, well, just being kids.

But for 1 in 5 of our kids, an obstacle stands in their way: not having enough nutrition to live up to their full potential. Too often, the only meal that these children receive is a school lunch.

Please join the No Kid Hungry campaign and educators across America to help end childhood hunger and create a nation of healthier, smarter children. We can’t let them do this alone.

Principal McElhaney, from a middle school in Maryland, has seen the effects of hunger firsthand, like when, one morning, a student failed a test and told him he just didn’t care because he was too hungry to think about his school work. Like many of our heroes in the school system, he knew he had to do something.

Educators like Principal McElhaney and the No Kid Hungry campaign know that one critical solution to fighting hunger is offering school breakfast. Today, Principal McElhaney’s school offers breakfast to all their students, making sure they start their day with the nutritious food they need — so when it’s time to focus on instruction, hunger doesn’t stand in their way.

Please take a minute to hear Principal McElhaney’s story and make a donation to the No Kid Hungry campaign. Your donation helps connect more kids to school breakfast. For every dollar you give, you can help provide up to 10 meals for a child, including a nutritious breakfast.

By supporting the No Kid Hungry campaign, you can bring us one step closer to helping millions of hungry children across the nation feel better, learn better and reach their full potential.

Thank you for all that you do to build a No Kid Hungry America.
