Childhood

Hungry children need our help.

Did you know childhood hunger can cause lasting physical and mental challenges on into adulthood? There’s no excuse for allowing boys and girls in our community to go hungry. It’s up to all of us to care for these growing kids, and give them every opportunity to lead healthier, more productive lives.

Proper nutrition in childhood is critical. Lack of regular, nourishing meals can lead to chronic illness and increased hospitalizations, developmental problems, and even significant health issues in adulthood. Hunger can cause difficulty focusing in school, and result in behavioral and social issues.

Childhood hunger is a serious problem in Southern Nevada.

  • More than 109,000 children regularly go hungry.
  • More than 62% of children in Clark County schools — that's more than 207,000 students — are enrolled in free or reduced-price meal programs.

Thanks to caring friends like you, boys and girls can get the delicious, nutritious meals they need to thrive. Your support ensures growing children can get access to meals at school, after-school feeding programs, and food assistance during the summer.
