Early Childhood Grant Micro Report

Last year, at the height of the COVID pandemic, No Kid Hungry provided grants and support to local organizations across the country who were doing everything they could to make sure their students got healthy food.

But what about children too young to attend school? Even now, as many as 1 in 8 kids in the United States are living with hunger.

No Kid Hungry came up with a plan to help children under the age of six by providing grants to childcare centers, local health departments and community groups that needed help feeding kids. 

We provided $3 million in grants to 126 different organizations across the country - each organization received an average of $25,000.  The majority of these groups serve children in communities of color, including children from immigrant and refugee families.
