For the Kids
Every kid deserves to grow up strong and healthy – and that starts with nutritious food
Hunger is often hidden, but it’s all around us. This is especially true in Silicon Valley, where people who work full-time jobs still struggle to afford nutritious food. This means the face of childhood hunger is more familiar – and more surprising – than you might think.
Every day, at school, at the playground, even at the grocery store, you likely see kids who don’t have consistent access to healthy food. In fact, 1 in 3 local kids in Silicon Valley is at risk of hunger. These are the children of healthcare workers, cooks, retail clerks, and many times, school teachers.
And the consequences are real. Childhood hunger is robbing our kids of the opportunity to grow up strong and healthy, concentrate in school and pursue their dreams.
Nutritious food offers hope. Together we can bring hope to the kids and families who struggle just to get enough to eat. Your support will help us expand our operations, open more school pantries and distribution sites, and connect more kids and families to nutritious food.
