Nestle’ Juicy Juice, Feeding America, and celebrity mom and anti-hunger advocate Samantha Harris have joined forces this summer to put up to 35 million piece of fruit in the hands of children and families in need. All summer (through August 31st), every time Juicy Juice is purchased, a piece of fruit will be donated to hungry kids and their families. You can learn more by visiting FruitForAllProject.com where you and your kids can complete challenges like games, quizzes, and puzzles to earn even more fruit donations for those in need!
The Truth About Child Hunger
- Over 16 million American children (more than 1 in 5) are food insecure, meaning they live at risk of hunger. In Washington D.C., the food insecurity rate is 16.5%. Check out this Interactive Hunger Map to see state-by-state statistics.
- For food insecure children who rely on free or reduced-price lunches, the summer presents an even greater risk. In fact, 18.7 million children are at risk during the summer months.
- America’s battle against hunger is not about having enough food; in fact, 20 billion pounds of food go to waste each year.
