Montana No Kid Hungry connects kids to healthy food. This campaign helps families find state food assistance programs and community resources by forming partnerships to increase participation, outreach, benefits, and education. As a result, this will connect families on a tight budget to free, nutritious meals and nutrition education and tips to help buy groceries.
With more than 1 out of 5 Montana children struggling with hunger, the Department of Public Health and Human Services (DPHHS) and Share Our Strength, a national nonprofit association, formed a partnership dedicated to end childhood hunger in the state.
The mission of No Kid Hungry is to end childhood hunger in Montana by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need every day. We accomplish this by using a three-pronged approach:
1- Improve food access by increasing participation in school breakfast, summer meal, and afterschool meal programs.
2- Develop/improve resources for families such as delivering nutrition education and cooking classes in a fun and interactive way.
3- Raise awareness through increasing the visibility of this important issue, getting people involved and engaging youth.

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.
