"1 in 7 children in the United States lives with hunger"
-No Kid Hungry
There is no possible excuse for children to go hungry in this country. Yet it happens every day and in every community which is why Jack and Link has partnered up with No Kid Hungry and is committed to donating a portion of every purchase made here on Jack and Link to end childhood hunger. Jack and Link has also committed certain products and if those products are purchased, 100% of the proceeds of those sales is donated to No Kid Hungry.
Who is No Kid Hungry and what do they do?
Making breakfast part of the regular school day, just like lunch, has a powerful effect on kids. That’s why No Kid Hungry works with educators, political leaders and local nonprofits across the country to change the way schools serve breakfast.
6 out of 7 hungry kids don't get the summer meals they need.
Millions of kids rely on school for regular meals. But in the summer those meals disappear. Currently, the national summer meals programs reaches just 15 percent of the children who need help when school is out of session.
No Kid Hungry is helping community leaders with the funding and know-how they need to start summer meals sites, as well as advocating for needed changes to the national summer meals program.
No Kid Hungry also runs a texting service to help parents and caregivers find free summer meals sites in their neighborhood. To date, over one million families have used the service to find free meals for their children.
The after school meals program helps kids get the nutritious meals they need in a safe, supervised location after the school day ends. This program is the newest federal child nutrition program, so No Kid Hungry is working to ensure that more kids, families and teachers know about it and are able to take advantage of it.
The afterschool meals program is one of the fastest-growing meals programs in the country, but is still only reaching a fraction of kids in need. In 2017, schools served only 9% of the snacks and suppers kids need every day.
All these points are all good but an organization has to be able to show successes for all their hard work. And yes, they absolutely do!! From endorsements with celebrities like Reese Witherspoon, Pink, Jeff Bridges, Kristen Bell, etc. etc. They also have a long list of corporate partners, restaurant partners, digital advocates, and have successfully implemented numerous programs in schools across the country. Rest assured that your donation through purchasing a toy through us goes to good use and directly makes an impact on the lives of children in need.
Jack and Link donates a portion of every toy purchased to No Kid Hungry. Every toy or teether purchased through us directly results in providing 10 meals to kids in need. Furthermore, 100% of the proceeds from our "Jack Gummy's" and "Link Gummy's" from our teether line is donated to No Kid Hungry.
