2 Share Our Strength staff is located in Washington, DC and cannot attend all FCCLA meetings. BUT, we’ve made it easy for you to present on our behalf. Step 1: Greet your workshop attendees. Use these talking points to help guide your 3 minute introduction. Share Our Strength is the National Outreach and Educational partner for FCCLA until 2016. There are more than 16 million kids in America that struggle with hunger. Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign is working to end childhood hunger in America by connecting kids with the food they need to thrive. Our partnership launched in 2011. FCCLA students have raised nearly $200,000 for No Kid Hungry. A $1 donation to Share Our Strength can connect a child with up to 10 nutritious meals. That means, FCCLA has helped connect kids with nearly 2 million meals. Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign is at work in all 50 states through state and city-based campaigns, nutrition education programs, and investments in local community partners. To learn more about Share Our Strength and the partnership visit:

6 Share Our Strength & FCCLA Working Together to End Childhood Hunger in America Share Our Strength: Making No Kid Hungry a Reality. Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign is at work in all 50 states through our state and city-based campaigns, nutrition education programs, and our investments in local community partners. A $1 donation to No Kid Hungry can provide a child with up to 10 nutritious meals. Since 2011, FCCLA students have nearly $200,000, supporting more than 2 million meals! Your fundraising and awareness activities are helping kids like Connor, 3, and Dakota, 9, in Arkansas. Tammy, the boys’ mom, never expected to struggle to feed her kids. But she found herself in the position of being unable to cover her bills and feed her boys after her divorce. She no longer needs to access SNAP but Dakota does get free meals at school to help stretch the budget. “I don’t want them to worry about where their food is going to come from, or if they are going to eat, or what they are going to eat, or if they are going to like it. I want them to be able to just be kids. It’s not something that they should worry about, ever, but especially as kids.” No child should grow up hungry in America, but one in five children struggles with hunger. That’s more than 16 million kids. Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign is ending childhood hunger in this nation by connecting kids in need with nutritious food and teaching their families how to cook healthy, affordable meals. We surround children with healthy food where they live, learn and play. We’re ending childhood hunger by connecting kids to effective nutrition programs like school breakfast and summer meals. This work is accomplished through the No Kid Hungry network, made up of private citizens, public officials, nonprofits, business leaders and others providing innovative hunger solutions in their communities. These public-private partnerships work together to identify and eliminate the barriers that may prevent children from accessing existing food and nutrition resources. Share Our Strength’s focus is on long-term change – the difference between just feeding a child today and making sure that children in the United Sates never go hungry. Since 2010, the No Kid Hungry campaign has connected kids struggling with hunger with more than 107 million additional meals. For more information visit us online at
