If you have not heard about Share Our Strength before, let me share with you what they are all about. Share Our Strength is a national nonprofit that is ending childhood hunger in America. Their highest priority is to make sure that every child in America gets the nutritious food he or she needs to learn, grow and thrive.
The facts are sad; 50.1 million Americans - including more than 17 million children - lack the means to get enough nutritious food on a regular basis, according to USDA’s report, Household Food Security in the United States, 2009, published in November 2010.
Once I started browsing Share Our Strength’s website it was hard to stop. They offer so much information regarding childhood hunger in America and so many ways you can help with solving the problem. Share Our Strength not only wants to make sure America’s children have enough to eat; they also want to make sure that children are getting the nutrition they need to live healthy, active lives.
