What Will You Bring to the Table? Hunger Awareness Campaign
There are almost 17 million kids in the United States experiencing hunger throughout the year. That means more than 1 in 5 kids in America do not know where their next meal is coming from.
Together, we can do better. With this national hunger campaign, generationOn challenges kids across the country to bring their ideas, skills, family and friends to the table to fight to help end child hunger by raising awareness about the issue.
We want youth in cities around the United States to build and decorate picnic tables and use them as the campaign centerpiece to help provide 1 million meals for hungry kids. Read more at www.whatwillyoubringtothetable.org
