Fleischmann’s and Karo, are committed to helping end childhood hunger in America by supporting Share Our Strength as an official No Kid Hungrypartner.
Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign is ending childhood hunger in this nation by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need, every day. Fleischmann’s and Karo are sharing their strength in the battle to eradicate childhood hunger through a multi-faceted, multi-year partnership, donating $450,000 of support for Share Our Strength and the No Kid Hungry campaign.
“No child should grow up hungry in America, yet more than 16 million children in the U.S. struggle with hunger,” said Keith Dierberg, senior brand manager for Fleischmann’s and Karo. “We’re honored to be able to harness the power of baking to lend a hand to the No Kid Hungry campaign and help end childhood hunger in America.”
To support the work of Share Our Strength, Fleischmann’s and Karo will rally the baking community to generate awareness of and support for the No Kid Hungry campaign. Starting in November, visit www.facebook.com/FleischmannsYeast and www.facebook.com/KaroSyrup to take the No Kid Hungry Pledge and learn more ways to help end childhood hunger.
“No child should grow up hungry in America, and we know first-hand the importance of homemade foods in providing nourishment and bringing families together,” said Billy Shore, founder and CEO of Share Our Strength. “We are grateful for the support of partners like Fleischmann’s and Karo, which helps get children the food they need, so they feel better, learn more and grow up stronger.”
