Help Hungry Kids Like Kate!


On the surface, you’d think Kate was an ordinary girl with an ordinary life. But what you don’t know is that Kate is hungry. She usually does well in school, but lately, she hasn’t done well and has even missed some days. When her teacher asked her what was wrong, Kate told her that her dad had lost his job and now, there’s not much food at home. Kate is so hungry she can’t concentrate on her schoolwork.

There are more than 145,200 hungry children in our area. Hungry children have more difficulty learning the basics like reading and math; they have more behavioral problems and are sick more often. But you can help these children.

One way we are touching lives is through our Childhood Hunger Initiative. Partner schools receive a combination of hunger programs. The initiative brings more food to children and families delivered through mobile pantries, school-based food pantries, and backpacks filled with food.

Now that Kate and her family receive help through this initiative, she is doing much better in school and her family doesn’t worry how or when they will have enough to eat.

To expand these programs we need your help. There are many more hungry children that we still need to reach and your gift can help us do that. For every $1 you give, we can provide 5 nutritious meals to children like Kate.

Help us honor all the Kate’s in our state with a gift today.
