About Share Our Strength

Share Our Strength®, a national nonprofit, is ending childhood hunger in America by connecting children with the nutritious food they need to lead healthy, active lives. Share Our Strength ensures children in need are enrolled in effective federal nutrition programs, invests in community organizations fighting hunger, teaches families how to cook healthy, affordable meals, and builds public-private partnerships to end hunger, at the state and city level.

Our Strategy for Ending Childhood Hunger in America

  • Improve access to public and private programs that provide food to families and children who need it and are not receiving it
  • Strengthen community resources that connect children to healthy food where they live, learn and play
  • Improve families’ knowledge about available programs and how to get the most from limited resources
  • Mobilize a broad cross-section of the American public to make a difference locally and nationally
