What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Childhood hunger in the US is a big broblem. With 1 in 5 youth at risk of hunger we have to do something to break the cycle of hunger and poverty. We are aiming to break the cycle starting with kids doing work to help kids in need, and giving the kids in need the ability to help themselves.

Charting impact

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

1. To create opportuities for youth to engage in hunger relief in a way that is reproducable 2. To create infrastructure for long term sustainable hunger relief 3. To bring the problem of childhood hunger to the forefront of people's minds

1. Host food drive run by kids 2. Put together and make available resources to help others put on their own food drives 3. Build community gardens in schools and other areas of high need 4. Innovate to come up with other ways to solve the problem of childhood hunger

We have the capaibilities through experience to host large local events to engage the community in hunger relief. We also have a web platform that allows us to share what we do with the masses.

We will measure - Amount of food collected - Dollars Donated - # of volunteers engaged - Number of gardens built

From 2013-2018 the Food Drive Kids have collected over 43,000 pounds of food, and $55,000 to help support hunger relief programs for kids at risk of hunger. They have also built several school gardens in areas of high need and inspired others to start their own food drives.
