Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Children's Hunger Alliance is a statewide non-profit agency working toward long-term solutions to fighting childhood hunger.
Childhood Hunger: The Problem In Ohio, the problem of childhood hunger is very real. Today, there are roughly 500,000 children who don't know where their next meal is coming from. This is a preventable problem.
The consequences of childhood hunger are profound, both for Ohio's children and the state. Children who don't have access to healthy meals suffer, and often have a harder time attending and learning in school and experience a greater number of health and behavioral problems.
Children's Hunger Alliance: The Solution Children's Hunger Alliance is a statewide non-profit agency working toward long-term solutions to fighting childhood hunger.
To achieve our goal, we work with schools, youth-serving non-profits, faith-based groups and child care providers to increase participation in USDA Child Nutrition Programs. In addition, we fight hunger and poor nutrition with education, physical activity information and supplemental resources for caregivers, parents and children.
A Brief History of the Agency In 1970, Children's Hunger Alliance started with a single volunteer and a $2,000 grant. Our programs and services now touch communities in every county in Ohio, helping feed the hungry minds and bodies of hundreds of thousands of children each year. We've had different names - Hunger Task Force and Ohio Hunger Task Force - but 40 years later, our goal is the same: to end childhood hunger in Ohio.
