About Us

Nearly 1 out of every 6 kids in Montana will struggle with hunger during their childhood.  Our mission is to end child 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 child hunger in the state.

Montana No Kid Hungry is working to eliminate childhood hunger in Montana using a three-pronged approach:

1). Improve food access by increasing participation in school breakfast, summer meal, and afterschool meal programs.

2). Enhance meal quality at school and at home, keeping the focus on wholesome foods. 

3). Raise awareness through increasing the visibility of this important issue, getting communities involved, and engaging youth.
