The No Kid Hungry Virginia campaign is the product of a public-private partnership that includes the First Lady of Virginia, Dorothy McAuliffe, the Virginia Department of Health, the Virginia Department of Education, and several corporate partners. Together, they work to end child hunger in the Commonwealth.
The No Kid Hungry Virginia campaign connects eligible kids to federal nutrition programs. The campaign is increasing awareness and participation in the School Breakfast Program, the Community Eligibility Provision, the Summer Meals Program, and the At-Risk Afterschool Meals Program.
When the No Kid Hungry Virginia campaign launched in 2011, more than 321,000 children in the state were at risk of hunger, or food insecure. Today, nearly 17 percent of children in Virginia face food insecurity. The work of the No Kid Hungry Virginia campaign continues to improve access to nutritious food programs.
