Hickory Farms invites all of our customers to join us in the fight against childhood hunger. We’ve designated Dec. 2 as “Giving Day,” and we encourage everyone to mark their calendars and make a donation of $1, $3, $5, or $10 to Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry® campaign, which works to help end childhood hunger in the U.S.

It’s hard to believe that more than 16 million children in the U.S. go to bed hungry, but poverty and lack of resources are making this situation a reality for many families. Part of the problem stems from a lack of awareness about the issue. To combat this, Hickory Farms will be hosting a Twitter discussion on Dec. 1st to help raise awareness at home.
Past efforts by Hickory Farms to raise funds include Taste of the Nation Toledo, among many others. For the past six years, we’ve been active partners with No Kid Hungry, working to make a difference in the lives of hungry families. Together with our customers, Hickory Farms’ partnership with the campaign has raised over $3.3 million dollars. These donations have gone a long way towards funding worthwhile community programs that provide emergency food aid, summer meal programs, education about nutrition and other long-term solutions for families in crisis. If you would like to learn more about how you can help out, visit No Kid Hungry’s website.
As you prepare to share the holidays with beloved family members and friends, it’s important to reach out to those less fortunate in our community. Giving locally can help combat hunger and poverty right in your own hometown. Remember that each of us can make a positive contribution to childhood hunger by donating to a worthy cause this holiday season.
