No Kid Hungry is helping end food insecurity. Here's how you can help, too
Tune in on August 7 for GL's Back-to-School Music Takeover for amaze performances, celeb hosts, special guests and sweet swag but also to help us raise funds and awareness for No Kid Hungry and the 1 in 4 kids who are going back to school hungry this year.

No Kid Hungry's mission is *so* important right now, which is why we are so excited that our Back-to-School Music Takeover is benefitting them.
Millions of children in the US face hunger—and it's No Kid Hungry's mission to make sure kids are getting the healthy food they need.
Interested in helping out? There is so much you can do to help end child hunger.
No Kid Hungry is a national non-profit that works with local partners around the country to make sure that kids everywhere have access to healthy food. That means helping fund school breakfast programs or free meals during the summertime.
You can donate in a lot of different ways. Sure, you can use a portion of your piggy bank but you can also have fun with your friends and fam to raise money together. You could also set up a fundraiser at your school or in your fave club. We're always stronger together!
Your community is an amaze place to start!
Contact your local food pantry and see what you can do to help out (maybe you help serve or deliver meals, reach out to community members for donations or use your stellar social media skills to help build an online presence). It's super easy to schedule just a few hours a month helping out your community.
Use your talents
You have so many talents that you can use to help end hunger. If you're a DIY *queen* you could make and sell products like earrings or stickers and donate all the proceeds to No Kid Hungry. If your family has a garden, you could grow fruits and veggies and donate them to your local food pantry, too.
Use your voice
Just because you might not be old enough to vote doesn't mean you can't use your voice. You can write to your community's elected officials in support of programs like SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program). You can organize fundraisers on social media or Youtube. And you can use your social media platform (big or small!) to inform your friends and fam about helping out your community and No Kid Hungry.
