Poverty and Childhood Hunger
In 2018, the federal poverty level was $25,750 for a family of four.Of course, this number is a minimum. Families making twice that much are still considered low-income by most experts, and many struggle to make ends meet.
How many Americans live in poverty today? Over 38 million, or 12% of all Americans, according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau.15 million of those were children.
Millions of children rely on school for regular meals. But in the summer, those meals disappear. In addition, many children’s meals have been impacted by school closings due to Covid-19. No Kid Hungry is helping community leaders with the funding and know-how they need to start meals sites, as well as advocating for needed changes to the national summer meals program.
Currently, the national summer meals programs reaches just 16 percent of the children who need help when school is out of session.
Teaching Families to Shop Smarter and Eat Healthier
Though schools and community programs are often the best way to reach older children, to help the youngest kids, we need to help their parents. Through our family nutrition education program, the Cooking Matters campaign, we’re helping parents and caregivers learn how to shop for and cook healthy, affordable meals.
