About Us

NO KID HUNGRY was formed in North Carolina in 2011 in partnership with state leaders and the national No Kid Hungry campaign, which is a program of  the nonprofit organization SHARE OUR STRENGTH. We collectively connect kids in need with nutritious food and teach their families how to cook healthy, affordable meals. The campaign also engages the public to make ending child hunger a national priority.

In 2014, No Kid Hungry NC became an initiative based at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill's Center for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention.

We’re working to end child hunger in America by connecting kids to effective but under-utilized nutrition programs like school breakfast, summer meals, and afterschool meals. This work is accomplished through the No Kid Hungry network, made up of private citizens, government officials, business leaders, and others providing innovative hunger solutions in their communities. These partners work together, implementing solutions that break down the barriers that keep kids from healthy food.

Our No Kid Hungry NC core team...

  • Lou Anne Crumpler, State Director
  • Tamara Baker, Communications Director, Summer Nutrition Program Manager, SNAP-Ed Child Nutrition Project Director
  • Helen Roberts, School Outreach Educator, School Breakfast Program Manager
