The Fresno Center receives grant from No Kid Hungry to decrease food insecurity in young children.
No Kid Hungry, a campaign from the national nonprofit Share Our Strength, will invest $3 million in grants to organizations focused on early childhood to help decrease food insecurity among children under the age of six.
The No Kid Hungry grants will serve more than 120 early child care centers, healthcare providers and community organizations. These organizations work with an estimated 170,000 children under the age of five in 34 states and the District of Columbia, including The Fresno Center in Fresno CA.
The Fresno Center has been making a huge impact on Food insecurity in Southeast Fresno and continues to offer wrap around services to food clients who indicate need on the intake form collected by trained advocates and social workers. The Fresno Center will utilize the grant funds to provide nutrition education and meals to 600 families which will strengthen our efforts to reach the most vulnerable population – CHILDREN.
