About Us

The No Kid Hungry Virginia campaign works to create public-private partnerships with state, federal, non-profit and private resources across Virginia. Together with the Virginia Department of Education and community partners, we work to end child hunger in the Commonwealth

The No Kid Hungry Virginia campaign connects eligible kids to federal 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 1 in 6 children in the state were at risk of hunger, or food insecure. Today, 1 in 7 children live in families that struggle with food insecurity. The work of the No Kid Hungry Virginia campaign continues to improve access to nutritious food programs.

Former First Lady of Virginia, Dorothy McAuliffe, serves as the Chair of the No Kid Hungry Virginia campaign.

No Kid Hungry Virginia, Share Our Strength, and The Virginia Department of Education work to support the Virginia 365 Project to End Childhood Hunger.
