About Us

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 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 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.

Greene County knows that every child deserves breakfast, not just on testing day –their alternative breakfast models are proof of that. Their recent breakfast “taste test” event got students ready for a full day of SOLs and exposed more students to the cafeteria’s wide variety of morning meal options.

“As the principal, I have the responsibility to feed all students. In the traditional way of serving school breakfast, we might reach 30% of kids, now we reach 70%. I’ll take that any day.” – Clint Mitchell, Principal, Fairfax County

We all know the feeling in the pit of our stomachs from childhood (and some of us from parenthood) when being called to the principal’s office. “Oh no. I am in trouble.” One in 6 children in the U.S. are in trouble and they do have a bad feeling in the pit of their stomachs, not because they are in trouble, but because they suffer from hunger. And, ironically, the principal’s office may be best places to make this feeling go away.
