Share Our Strength – No Kid Hungry Bake Sale 2013 – Hosted by

According to Share Our Strength one of every five children struggle with hunger.

Hunger prevents kids from reaching their full potential. It’s an epidemic that’s threatening America’s future.
  • More than 16 million kids in America live in households who struggle to put food on the table
  • Nearly 22 percent of kids - under the age of 18 live in poverty
  • 9.8 million kids – more than ever – get free or reduced price school breakfast but…10.6 million eligible kids go without
  • Only 1 in 7 kids who get free or reduced price school lunches receive Summer meals
  • Nearly half of all people who use the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP or food stamps) are kids
  • 9 out of 10 teachers say that having a healthy breakfast is key to academic achievement

Here are more staggering and disheartening statistics from Share Our Strength:
