Mission Statement

SHARE OUR STRENGTH IS A NATIONAL NONPROFIT THAT IS ENDING CHILDHOOD HUNGER IN AMERICA.

Share Our Strength's goal is to end childhood hunger in America. Working with others, we believe we can do this by 2015.

Description

It's not enough to make sure America's children have enough to eat; we must make sure they are getting the nutrition they need to live healthy, active lives.

That is why Share Our Strength's highest priority is to make sure that every child in America gets the nutritious food he or she needs to learn, grow and thrive. We are doing this by improving the access that families all across the country have to healthy, affordable food and by working at the state and city level. This is our No Kid Hungry strategy, and it has four key components that, together, provide children with the nutritious food they need where they live, learn and play:

  • Creating public-private partnerships at the state and city level to map out comprehensive, measurable plans to end child hunger in those areas.
  • Building public awareness about the problem of childhood hunger and solutions to end it.
  • Investing in communities with grants to organizations whose work improves access to nutritious foods or that educate families about such programs.
  • Educating children and families about nutritious, affordable eating.
