Share Our Strength
WHAT THEY DO:
Share Our Strength began in the basement of a row house on Capitol Hill in 1984, in response to the ‘84-‘85 famine in Ethiopia. Brother and sister Bill and Debbie Shore started the organization with the belief that everyone has a strength to share in the global fight against hunger and poverty, and that in these shared strengths lie sustainable solutions.
WHY THEY DO IT:
To end child hunger in America by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need, every day.
WHY WE'RE INVOLVED:
Today they focus these strengths on making No Kid Hungry a reality in America. The No Kid Hungry campaign connects kids in need with nutritious food and teaches their families how to cook healthy, affordable meals. The campaign also engages the public to make ending child hunger a national priority.
