As friends and families gather to celebrate the holiday season, Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry® campaign invites holiday shoppers to remember the one in six children suffering from hunger by purchasing gifts that support the effort to end childhood hunger in America.

National brands like Williams Sonoma, Tovolo, Ayesha Curry Cookware and more, will offer products and promotions that support No Kid Hungry this holiday season. Every $1 donated to No Kid Hungry this holiday season connects a child in need to 10 meals.

The holidays can be a stressful time for families and children struggling with hunger. As schools close for holiday breaks, students miss out on programs like school breakfast and afterschool meals, which many children rely on for access to healthy food.
