Montana | No Kid Hungry

About Us

More than 1 out of every 5 kids in Montana will struggle with hunger during their childhood.  Our mission is to end childhood hunger in Montana by connecting kids to the healthy food they need to succeed in the communities where they live.

Through a partnership with the Department of Public Health and Human Services (DPHHS), the office of Montana Governor Steve Bullock, and the national non-profit organization Share Our Strength, Montana No Kid Hungry has dedicated itself to putting an end to childhood hunger in Montana.

Montana No Kid Hungry's campaign works by educating families about the state food assistance programs and community resources available to them, expanding the areas being served by these programs, and by forming partnerships to increase participation, outreach, benefits, and education. As a result, lower-income families receive better access to free, nutritious meals, nutrition education, and tips and strategies that will help stretch their dollars further at the grocery store.

News & Updates

Although starting traditional breakfast is a huge triumph, it’s not always the most effective approach to reach the maximum number of students. By offering an alternative breakfast model, we hope to increase breakfast participation.

We hope that with the addition of the food truck to our food service, we will be able to reach more vulnerable youth during the summer months that might not otherwise eat, while also encouraging high school students to stay on campus for a healthy lunch, instead of going to local fast food restaurants.

Many families in northern Montana struggle to provide for their kids. Thanks to No Kid Hungry, their children are able to eat free, healthy meals at school (and in the summer when school is out), so families can focus on building bright futures for their kids. Your support helps us deliver hope to communities like these across America. Donate today at www.NoKidHungry.org.
