Mission Statement

Children's Hunger Alliance is a statewide non-profit agency working toward long-term solutions to fighting childhood hunger.

Description

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.
