Logo for No Kid Hungry North Carolina

No Kid Hungry NC works to end child hunger and ensure kids get the food they need by increasing access to underutilized federal child nutrition programs for school breakfast, afterschool meals, and summer meals. It works closely with state agencies, schools and school districts, community partners, and others to expand, promote, and innovate within these nutrition programs. No Kid Hungry NC also offers Cooking Matters for Kids programming through schools in Orange County, and at meal sites in the summer months.

No Kid Hungry NC is a partnership between Share Our Strength and the UNC Center for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention. The No Kid Hungry NC team works in collaboration with Carolina Hunger Initiative (LINK), which is also a part of UNC HPDP.
