The No Kid Hungry Virginia campaign is the product of a public-private partnership that includes the First Lady of Virginia Dorothy McAuliffe, the Virginia Department of Health, the Virginia Department of Education, and several corporate partners. Together, we work to end childhood hunger in the Commonwealth.
The goal of the No Kid Hungry Virginia campaign is to end childhood hunger in Virginia by 2018. The No Kid Hungry Virginia campaign works to achieve this goal by connecting eligible kids to federal food and nutrition programs. The campaign is increasing awareness and participation in the School Breakfast Program, the Community Eligibility Provision, the Summer Meals Program, and the At-Risk Afterschool Meals Program.
When the No Kid Hungry Virginia campaign launched in 2011, more than 321,000 children in the state were at risk of hunger, or food insecure. Today, nearly 17 percent of children in Virginia face food insecurity. The work of the No Kid Hungry Virginia campaign continues to improve access to nutritious food programs.
No Kid Hungry Virginia, Share Our Strength and First Lady Dorothy McAuliffe work to support the Virginia 365 Project to End Childhood Hunger.
