WHY: One in five kids in the US is living with hunger. No Kid Hungry is working to make sure every child gets three meals a day by advocating for programs that give kids the healthy food they need to thrive, and supporting communities with the resources they need to feed children. Each ticket to Taste of the Nation raises funds for this work, with each dollar providing up to 10 meals for kids in need.
