“No child should grow up hungry in America, but unfortunately more than 16 million kids in this country struggle with hunger, including more than 1.1 million kids in right here in Florida. The good news is, we can change that,” said Chef Clay Conley. “I love seeing our local food community come together through Taste of the Nation Palm Beach to raise the critical awareness and funds needed to make No Kid Hungry a reality.”
The No Kid Hungry campaign is ending childhood hunger in this nation by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need, every day by connecting them to nutrition programs like school breakfast and summer meals and by teaching families how to cook healthy, affordable meals at home.
Since summer 2011, No Kid Hungry efforts to expand access to summer meals and school breakfast have helped connect kids to more than 34 million additional meals. The No Kid Hungry campaign is replicating that success around the country by working collaboratively with its partners to feed millions of American children. In 2013, Taste of the Nation Palm Beach raised more than $57,000, which can help connect children in need with up to 570,000 meals.
