Nutritious food helps children to lead healthy, productive lives. There is an immediate opportunity to reach 65 million school-age children who currently attend school but do not get enough to eat. Evidence shows that locally-sourced school meal programs have wide-reaching effects across sectors, especially increasing children’s educational outcomes and improving their development, ameliorating the effects of hunger, and creating learning and economic opportunities even in very poor communities. Get involved today by making a tax-deductible contribution.


Powerful things happen when parents, educators, community organizers, local businesses, and government officials within a school system share a common vision for healthy children. Yes, a child’s prospects are changed but it is far more than that. Local farmers work with purpose knowing there’s a ready market for their goods. Jobs are created to distribute and produce food. Local economies grow stronger as children grow up to be healthy, productive citizens who can access and create opportunity. When systems work together in this manner, school nutrition programs are sustainable and scalable. Societies develop in which hunger is not a barrier to children’s learning and local economies thrive.
