A Laser-Focused Strategy On Child Nutrition

Meals for Kids

Childhood hunger is a looming crisis with huge future education and health consequences for Minnesota. But it does not need to happen at all.

Federal nutrition programs already exist to help those living in economic hardship – but they’re significantly under-utilized. That’s true even when children and families quality for the programs.

Hunger Impact Partners implements five precision-focused initiatives to provide more nutritious meals to our kids. These five programs feed infants and children across Minnesota:

  • In child care
  • At school breakfast
  • After school
  • During the summer
  • In their homes
