Starting to plan for 2015 Food Drive


It's time to end childhood hunger in America.

Here's how you can make youth-led food drives
more meaningful, fun, and effective.
1 in 5 children in America face hunger; One in seven Americans turns to the Feeding America food bank network for assistance. Thirty-nine percent of their client households have a child under age 18. This is a problem we can solve, and it's time to get involved. Thank you for joining YSA, Sodexo Foundation, and our incredible partners and youth leaders for this online presentation to learn how youcan take action to end childhood hunger by making youth-led food drives more meaningful, fun, and effective.
