While many children across the country are enjoying their summer vacations, there are 16 million kids who live in households that struggle to put food on the table. This time of year brings doubt about where their meals will come from without access to school breakfast and lunch programs.
Providing children with the high-quality protein food they need to grow and thrive is an ongoing challenge for the nation’s charities and food producers. As part of the Good Egg Project, America’s egg farmers are joining forces with Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry® campaign to help raise awareness and encourage others to fight childhood hunger and give kids access to high-quality protein foods, like eggs, year-round.
Leigh Ann Edwards, registered dietician and representative from Share Our Strength, explains how you can help by pledging to fight childhood hunger in America. For every pledge made, America’s egg farmers will donate one egg to local food banks to help alleviate childhood hunger.
