Shop LC partners with No Kid Hungry, and there is a plan to help during this pandemic, and after too. We could use your help. No Kid Hungry is equipping communities with the resources they need through a combination of emergency grants, strategic assistance, advocacy, and awareness.

We’re doing everything we can during this time to support our communities. Part of that is our support of No Kid Hungry, who is making sure kids get the food they need — especially this summer, which will be harder for families impacted by COVID-19. Here’s what they’re doing and how you can help.

  • No Kid Hungry Free Meals Finder is an online interactive map which helps families find free food distribution sites in their communities.
  • No Kid Hungry Summer Texting Line is a text-based service that can help families find free meals by texting “FOOD” or “COMIDA” to 877-877.
