(Plantation, Fla.) – Matt Poncy, Leasing/Marketing Agent for our MOB Satellite Office in Plantation, Fla. is actively involved with a group called Share our Strength, or No Kid Hungry. Find out about this great charity below.
No child should go hungry in America, but 1 in 5 kids will face hunger this year. Using proven, practical solutions, No Kid Hungry is ending childhood hunger today by ensuring that kids start the day with a nutritious breakfast and families learn the skills they need to shop and cook on a budget. When we all work together, we can make sure kids get the healthy food they need. No Kid Hungry is a campaign of national anti-hunger organization Share Our Strength.
Today, too many kids know what it’s like to open their textbooks with an empty stomach. Studies confirm that when a hungry child eats breakfast, they have better attendance, improve in math, and are more likely to graduate from high school. No Kid Hungry works with schools across the country to make sure every child starts the day with a healthy breakfast. No Kid Hungry also works to expand the availability of meals for kids who need them in the summertime and after the school day is over.
No Kid Hungry’s Cooking Matters program has been featured by First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! campaign and recognized by the U.S. Department of Agriculture for excellence in nutrition education. Cooking Matters courses and grocery store tours provide families with the skills they need to maximize their food budgets and put healthy meals on their tables, every day.
