Sep 14, 2020McCain Foods USA to support No Kid Hungry amid COVID-19 school closures
McCain Foods USA announced Sept. 14 a new partnership with No Kid Hungry to help ensure children have access to healthy meals amid COVID-related school closures and beyond.
To launch the partnership, McCain Foods donated $75,000 which will be directed to No Kid Hungry’s coronavirus response and recovery efforts that will help provide children with the most important school supply they can have: food.
“One in four children in the United States could face hunger this year due to the impact of the coronavirus,” said Greg Evans, senior vice president 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, senior vice president 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.”
As a family-owned business, McCain Foods cares deeply about creating positive change for communities to thrive and is proud to partner with No Kid Hungry, a national campaign focused solely on eradicating childhood hunger in America.
