Share Our Strength
Our parent organization,Share Our Strength® is a national non-profit that works hard to ensure that no child in America grows up hungry. It weaves together a net of community groups, activists and food programs to catch children facing hunger and surround them with nutritious food where they live, learn and play.
Share Our Strength® began in the basement of a row house on Capitol Hill in 1984, in the wake of the Ethiopian famine. Bill and Debbie Shore started the organization with the belief that everyone has a strength to share in the global fight against hunger and poverty, and that in these shared strengths lie sustainable solutions.
Those same principles remain solidly in place today at Share Our Strength as we continue our global efforts to end hunger and poverty with a sharp focus on ending childhood hunger in America. In 2004, we announced our strategy and supporting plan to end childhood hunger in America, we inked our first state partnership to this strategy in 2006, added two more in 2007 along with an historic partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and in 2008 unveiled a new brand identity, logo and language to connect us tightly and irrefutably to this priority: to make sure that no child in America grows up hungry.
