Share Our Strength, a national nonprofit, is ending childhood hunger in America by connecting children with the nutritious food they need to lead healthy, active lives.

From Arkansas to Chicago to Capitol Hill, it's easy to see that Share Our Strength is making a difference in the fight to end childhood hunger.Read More »
