KY Kids Eat is Feeding Kentucky’s childhood hunger program. We are committed to ending childhood hunger in Kentucky by connecting kids to healthy meals 365 days a year.
The No Kid Hungry Kentucky campaign, a partnership between Share Our Strength and Feeding Kentucky, is the key strategy to ensuring kids get the food they need by increasing access to school breakfast, school meal, and afterschool meals.
KY Kids Eat provides funding, training, and support for partners in almost all 120 counties in Kentucky. Our KY Kids coalition, a statewide network of nonprofits, school systems, policymakers, business leaders, and community members, creates innovative hunger solutions that ensure no child in Kentucky grows up hungry.
