National Nutrition Month, No Kid Hungry

It’s National Nutrition Month. Did you know that 1 in 5 children in America go hungry?

Friends, no child in America should grow up hungry. But too many kids in our country don’t have the food they need to thrive. No Kid Hungry is connecting kids all across the country with healthy food where they live, learn and play.

In my residing state of Massachusetts, 17% of children go hungry. This is unacceptable.

I have personally witnessed children as young as 4 years old taking snacks from their classmates at school because they didn’t have food of their own. It broke my heart.

I knew I had to do something to help my community so I joined the No Kid Hungry volunteer program, Cooking Matters, as a Culinary Course Instructor.

No child should ever go without food or love
