When we started putting ideas and thoughts together for this event, one of the first things the kids on our Jr. Executive Board said was “We ought to partner with Chick-Fil-A. They love hungry kids and would probably want to be a part of Child Hunger Day.” We all decided that this was a great idea. We also realized that there wasn’t any restaurant we would rather partner with more than Chick-Fil-A. It was just a perfect fit for both of us.

It's time to spread the word that there are 17 million children in America facing hunger every single day because together we can change that number. Child Hunger Day® | one day changes everything.
Childhood is the first thing that poverty takes away from a child. And I know this firsthand because I was one of the children who was one of the one in six. I was the one in seventeen million. I spent most of my childhood being raised in condemned buildings infested with rats. I was the child that went to bed hungry every single night. It encouraged me to steal food, it encouraged me to jump in dumpsters that were infested with maggots just to find food. It even encouraged me to befriend people who had mothers who cooked three meals a day, so I could go over and hopefully enjoy a hot meal. I believe the desperation of hunger fills a child with so much shame and they don't have the voice to say "help". The great Muhammad Ali once said - "service is the price that you pay for taking up space on this earth". I truly believe in our lifetime, we can see the eradication of hunger in children. For me, it is not what I have, but what I do, that is my kingdom. I'm constantly motivated by the scared little hungry girl in pig-tails that lives deep inside me that stole the ice cream from the corner store but now longs to make a difference in child hunger across America. - Viola Davis: Actress | Academy Award Nominee
We don't own trucks, warehouses, fork lifts, commercial kitchens to cook in or have elaborate and intricate programs to run but we literally have hundreds of partners who do. What would be the point of us trying to duplicate what is already being done? Another warehouse needing to be filled, food needing to be cooked and distributed, payroll demands needing to be met, trucks to repair, electric bills to be paid and the list goes on and on. That is why it is so important for us to stay laser-focused on our primary goal: increasing funds and awareness to help our amazing partner organizations keep up the great work in bringing an end to child hunger! Our friends and partners are busy on the front line, down in the trenches fighting the good fight against child hunger and there is absolutely no need in them being distracted from their mission. These guys are literally in the heat of the battle and we've got their back!
This is exactly why we exist and this is all we do. We aren't part of some three ring circus trying to twirl too many plates at one time. We aren't a clown juggling flaming swords one minute then putting our head in the lion's mouth the next. We are who we are and we do what we do with excellence and that is why we are so effective and successful. We have years of experience and expertise in creative charitable campaigns and fundraising events. Our process is extremely simple just like us. We creatively partner with celebrities, corporations, churches and civic organizations across the nation to help our participating members financially so they can stay focused on what they do best - feeding hungry children!
