Did you know that this summer while many of us are planning summer picnics and backyard barbeques, as many as one in five children in the U.S., including more than one in four Latino children, may not know where their next meal is coming from? That’s nearly 16 million children, a number that could fill 8,000 playgrounds.
School is out and summertime means that millions of children lose access to school lunches, leaving them unsure of when, or if, their next meal is coming. As many as 10% of U.S. children live in food insecure homes, however it’s simple for anyone to help out, regardless of your budget.
Kids who experience even intermittent struggles with hunger may suffer serious, long-term consequences to their health, well-being and educational achievement. What’s more, being hungry robs kids of the promise of childhood – the ability to play, grow and learn. To help combat child hunger and help kids meet their full potential, ConAgra Foods is partnering with P&G to build a community of people to make a difference and help donate up to 7 million meals through the Child Hunger Ends Here campaign.
Multiple GRAMMY-nominee Hunter Hayes and ConAgra Foods have teamed up to end child hunger. Child Hunger Ends Here is proud to work with Grammy-nominated country music artist Hunter Hayes and be the presenting sponsor of his “We’re Not Invisible” tour. For every download of Hunter’s new single, “Invisible,” on iTunes, Child Hunger Ends Here will donate the monetary equivalent of one meal to the nation’s leading hunger-relief charity, Feeding America, up to 1 million meals.
Right now Child Hunger Ends Here is giving you the exciting opportunity to “Ask Hunter” a question—and he may answer it personally! Here’s how!
