Program areas at Share Our Strength

No kid hungry access and advocacy:since launching the no kid hungry campaign, share our strength has connected kids struggling with hunger with more than 1 billion meals and one-third fewer children are now struggling with hunger. By working with our partners and investing in practical solutions to end hunger, we are feeding more kids every day, making sure they have the food they need to learn and grow. Schools are making breakfast part of the school day with the help of no kid hungry. We've successfully advocated for breakthrough policy changes to feed more children. And, we're finding new ways to reach kids with meals during the summer and after the school day, everywhere from major cities like new york city to the rural appalachian hill country. No matter the time of day, or time of year, we're there for kids without enough food at home.

Cooking matters campaign:share our strength has more than 20 years of experience in delivering quality nutrition education through cooking matters, a campaign to empower low-income families with the skills to stretch their food budgets so their children get healthy meals at home. Cooking matters serves families at more than 1,200 locations across the country through hands-on, six-week cooking courses; interactive grocery store tours; and mobile, online and educational tools. Participants learn to shop smarter, use nutrition information to make healthier choices, and cook delicious, affordable meals. In 2017, we reached a major milestone: more than 500,000 families have learned how to purchase and prepare nutritious food through our programming.
