Our Effort to Fight Hunger

Hunger is a complex issue. When people face hunger, they also fail to meet many other basic needs – such as housing, employment, and healthcare. Here in the U.S., 1 in 6 children faces hunger. CalerieKids™ is now partnering with the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization to bring an end to hunger together.

Food Today. Food Security Tomorrow! 

Hunger can affect people from all walks of life. Millions of people are just in one job loss, missed paycheck, or medical emergency away from hunger.

CalerieKids™’s partnership with FeedingAmerica® is now helping the nationwide network of food banks deliver food at the front line of hunger.

  • 38 million people face hunger in the U.S. – including more than 12 million children. 
  • 1 in 8 families in America are hungry, and that’s 12.3% of all U.S. households.
  • 15% of people in rural areas are hungry.
  • The pandemic has increased food insecurity among families of color, who were already faced hunger at much higher rates before the pandemic.

For 40 years, FeedingAmerica® has been the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization with a network of 200 food banks. It has fed 40 million people at risk of hunger, including 12 million children and 7 million seniors.

Bringing an end to hunger isn’t easy!

CalerieKids™ encourages you to connect with your local food bank and start your food donation. Let’s meet the need of families across the country and help them build a brighter future.
