This might come as a surprise given the wealth surrounding us here in Silicon Valley, but 1 in 3 kids in Silicon Valley is at risk of hunger. The high cost of housing in our area means access to nutritious food is a challenge, and in ways that defy stereotype. This means the face of childhood hunger is more familiar – and more surprising – than you might think.
Every day, at school, at the playground, even at the grocery store, you likely see kids who don’t have consistent access to healthy food. It robs kids of the opportunity to grow up strong and healthy, concentrate in school and pursue their dreams.
You can help nourish the next generation of entrepreneurs and community leaders by donating to our fundraiser.
Second Harvest Food Bank is leading local efforts to ensure that any child who needs a healthy meal can get one. With our help, they’ll distribute more nutritious food, help more families eat healthier and connect more kids and families to the nutritious meals they need at school and during the summer.
Thank you for helping kids realize their full potential and pursue their dreams!
