More than one in four children in North Carolina have insufficient food to grow and be active, according to recent data. No Kid Hungry North Carolina is a partnership launched in September 2011 with the national nonprofit Share Our Strength and state leaders to connect children with nutritious food. It works with government, nonprofits and businesses to bring resources and solutions to the growing child hunger issue in North Carolina.
Today the NC chapter of No Kid Hungry is holding their NC Child Hunger Leaders Conference in Chapel Hill. Leaders in the fight against childhood hunger will be convening, including a workshop with the Food Shuttle’s very own: Kyle Abrams!
