Join Hickory Farms and Support Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry Campaign this Summer

Did you know that more than 21 million kids in the U.S. receive free and reduced-price lunches at school? These nutrition programs provide critical support to families in need and keep children full and focused on their education. But what happens when summer break rolls around? For families trying to make ends meet, summer can mean struggling to stretch already tight food budgets. Federal summer meals programs provide a solution. These free, healthy meals are available to kids and teens, age 18 and under at thousands of summer meal sites across the country. But too many kids are missing out.

The No Kid Hungry campaign raises awareness to ensure parents and kids know that they can access free summer meals and works to recruit new program sites to reach communities in need. As a proud …
