Chrysler Pacifica Partners With No Kid Hungry To End Childhood Hunger
Did you know that one in six children in America lives in hunger? Did you also know that when kids don’t have the necessary nutrition they need, they are more likely to struggle in school, miss class, along with generally not feeling well? In an effort to end childhood hunger, the No Kid Hungry Campaign is teaming up with Chrysler to make sure kids get the food they need (and deserve) every day.
“Through our partnership with No Kid Hungry, the Chrysler brand can help bring awareness to childhood hunger and support the organization’s work across America,” says Steve Beahm, Head of Passenger Car Brands – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America. “Childhood hunger is a solvable problem. No child in America should go without a meal and, as a trusted family brand, our work with this campaign will help ensure more kids across the country have the food they need to learn and grow.”
Since launching in 2010, No Kid Hungry has improved childhood hunger by one-third, and with the help of Chrysler, Share Our Strength can continue its work with the No Kid Hungry campaign to improve the lives of families across the country to ensure their children have the nutritious food they need to succeed. It’s no secret that ending childhood hunger is no easy task. Fortunately, No Kid Hungry knows what works, and while providing experts with the tools and resources to bring a solution to this problem, they’ve made extraordinary progress for those children and families suffering.
Additionally, Chrysler plans on sponsoring numerous upcoming No Kid Hungry fundraisers in multiple cities across the nation. The brand will utilize social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram in an effort to amplify the campaign’s initiatives.
