EVERY KID. HEALTHY FOOD. EVERY DAY.
That’s our promise. And that’s how we’ll end childhood hunger, by ensuring that no matter the time of day, or time of year, we’ll be there for kids.
No Kid Hungry Missouri connects children in need with programs like school breakfast, afterschool and summer meals. Working together with local organizations around the state, we generate the will and skill to help communities feed children in need every day of the year.
REGIONAL CHILD HUNGER SUMMIT SERIES
Last fall, No Kid Hungry Missouri, in partnership with the 20 Community Partnerships in the FACT network, held a series of Regional Child Hunger Summits throughout the state. At these one-day events, attendees learned how to eliminate child hunger in their community by developing scalable and sustainable food service programs, including school breakfast, afterschool meals, and summer meals. Attendees also learned strategies to maximize participation in USDA reimbursable meals programs to increase food service revenues while surrounding kids with consistent access to nutritious meals.
Regional meetings were held across Missouri with over 300 attending. Check back for future summits.
This year we are inviting all Missouri schools to participate in the breakfast challenge! In addition to reimbursement grants for eligible schools, all participating schools can compete for cash incentives for increased breakfast participation.
