Promising Practices to End Rural Child Hunger - Grant Cohort Overview

Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign is pleased to announce our 2022 cohort of community-based organizations working to alleviate child hunger and food insecurity in rural communities across the United States. Through the ‘Promising Practices to End Rural Child Hunger’ initiative, Share Our Strength provided grant funding to support the work of community-based organizations. In doing so, this initiative seeks to identify, document, and better understand promising practices within rural communities that achieve one or more of the following outcomes: 

  • Increase food security among rural children

  • Increase participation in one or more of the federal Child Nutrition Programs

  • Decrease stigma associated with accessing federal Child Nutrition Programs and/or additional food assistance resources

  • Promoting and supporting enrollment of SNAP, WIC, and/or Pandemic - EBT programs as well as the Child Tax Credit.

  • Broad-based community engagement to understand and address community needs related to child food security, as well as sustained partnerships to sustain meaningful interventions over time.
