McCain Foods USA, a leading supplier of frozen potato and snack food products, is partnering with No Kid Hungry by donating $75,000 to help ensure children across America have access to healthy meals amid coronavirus-related school closures and beyond.
Beginning on Sept. 14 through Oct. 16, for every No Kid Hungry post that is liked or shared, McCain Foods will donate an additional $1 up to $5,000.
“One in 4 children in the United States could face hunger this year due to the impact of the coronavirus,” said Greg Evans, SVP at McCain Foods USA. “Children need a balanced meal in order to support healthy brain development and their ability to learn. We hope these resources will help schools and community groups navigate the unprecedented challenges of the upcoming school year and help children receive the nutrition they need.”
“Back to school is looking very different this year, but one thing hasn’t changed: millions of kids rely on the nutrition they receive from school meals to learn, grow and reach their full potential,” said Diana Hovey, SVP at Share Our Strength, the organization behind the No Kid Hungry campaign. “We’re so grateful for partners like McCain Foods who have stepped up to help kids get the meals they need, whether they are in the classroom or not. We couldn’t do this without them.”
