Feeding America uses donated money to buy food for people who can't afford to buy it on their own, or you can donate your own food. The donated food goes to a meal packing event, and get sent somewhere in the U.S.. There are twelve million children estimated to be served by Feeding America.
Heather is a single mom who struggles to provide food for her three children. Last summer her local church started serving meals to families like hers. Before her church served meals her and other families in her community they went hungry. But, over the summer The Arkansas Hunger Relief Alliance, inspired by No Kid Hungry, has been working to stop the hunger. Thanks to all the volunteers at the Main Street Baptist Church, many families like Heather's know where their next meal will come from.
