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

Working with Jenn, the director of the Afterschool Program at W. F. Morrison (the elementary school in Troy) we secured a $2000 grant from No Kid Hungry and a five year reimbursement award from CACFP (the Child & Adult Care Food Program) to implement the transition from an afterschool snack to a complete meal.

An overwhelming number of respondents spoke about their wish for ‘neighborliness,’ and to feel a stronger connection to their peers and fellow community members. This was striking to me, and gave me motivation in my pursuits, to not only fulfill my objectives of food access, nutrition education, and community awareness, but also to foster sociability and friendliness throughout my service.

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!

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.
