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.

The recent breakdown of my truck forced me to walk in freezing temperatures on icy streets. Meeting the challenges of my service this year necessitates mobility - my plan to get a Breakfast After the Bell program established in Libby depends on it!

Broadwater students are also getting more involved in the well-being of their school communities by creating promotional posters for healthier options, making announcements to highlight fruits and vegetables, and being nutritional role models. We hope this process will align with the philosophy that social change starts on a ground level, and peer-to-peer advocacy is the most effective way to make the healthiest option the most popular.

After taking a moment to build up his courage, he began to speak. He told me that he and his family had been going from church to church in an effort to get enough food to make it through the month, and with tears welling up in his eyes he added, "This dinner was such a blessing to us. Will you be doing this again soon?" At that moment I realized the real significance of what No Kid Hungry is doing here in this little community and the importance of keeping it going!

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.
