On an empty stomach, I can’t …

Without fuel and nutrition, people – kids especially – don’t have the energy to focus, learn, grow and ultimately, succeed. This month, we’re asking you to help raise awareness with our Empty Plate campaign. Whether through a simple tweet, Facebook post or a conversation with friends and family, please help us spread the word about the realities of trying to “run on empty.” Then, think about the ways you can take action to end hunger in our community.
