BREAKFAST POWERS KIDS

But millions of kids start the school day on an empty stomach. A hungry child can't learn, can't focus, can't be who they want to be.

SIGN OUR LETTER

Below is an open letter to the children of America. On April 15, No Kid Hungry will publish the letter in USA Today. Read it, and - if you agree - add your name to the growing list alongside Kristen Bell, Big Freedia, Duff Goldman and many more.

Dear children,

You deserve a future filled with possibilities. That starts with getting the healthy food you need - every day.


That's why I'm taking a stand for you by asking our leaders to ensure that every child in America starts the school day with a healthy breakfast.


Work hard, do your best and look out for each other. We're behind you.


Take action now. Sign our letter:

“If a kid comes in to school and they are fed, their tummies are full, then they are ready for the instructional day.”


PRINCIPAL CLINT MITCHELL

“When I don't eat breakfast, I just lay my head down and don't write on my paper. When I do eat breakfast, I feel good, I listen, and I do good.”


JOSEPHINE, 8 YEARS OLD

“Food equals potential, but with 1 in 7 kids in America living with hunger, their potential is out of reach. That’s why I support No Kid Hungry.”


DUFF GOLDMAN

“When kids are full they are ready to learn, ready to engage, and ready to dream big. We see it in ourselves and in our own children. Food fuels success.”


KRISTIN BELL

“No child can succeed without an adequate breakfast to begin the day. No Kid Hungry is helping give all kids that nutritious start.”
