These chefs all participate in Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry® Campaign

to end childhood hunger in America.

At a time when there are more than 17 million children in our country wondering when they will receive their next meal now is the time for us to step up to the plate to support NO KID HUNGRY in America and it starts at the top!
Kids are not hungry because we lack food, kids are hungry because we lack access to nutritious meal programs for these kids to eat; summer food programs, school breakfast, afterschool snack & suppers. these programs can make a difference in the life of a child.
