June is National Hunger Awareness Month. As school draws to a close my thoughts turn to the many children who rely on school for regular meals. I am reflecting that for most of those children summer isn’t the time of joy and freedom that we have come to think of at the end of the school term but a time of worry about the lack of food.
I would like to share this video called The Story of Hungry. Perhaps we can all try to make a difference.

The story of hungry takes place in schools, playgrounds and houses across the United States and the No Kid Hungry campaign is working to rewrite it.
In schools, more kids are getting breakfast, raising math test scores 17.5% where kids are accessing them.
During the summer, innovative local leaders are getting the support they need to start meal programs that work. Food trucks, new technology and better tracking turned Arkansas from the most food insecure state in the country to the state with the highest increase in the number of meals served to kids.
Things are changing everywhere, millions of kids who have had no voice are gaining one thanks to you. Find out ways that you can get involved at http://www.nokidhungry.org.
About This Project
The Story of Hungry is a unique look at hunger through the eyes of a child, created by Creative Artists Agency in partnership with the No Kid Hungry campaign, and brought to life through the talents of Hornet Studios director, Julia Potts, with contributions from music producer, Justin Stanley, and featuring the voices of Bess Frierson and No Kid Hungry spokesperson, and Academy Award winner, Jeff Bridges. Every dollar donated to No Kid Hungry will help connect hungry kids to healthy meals.
Together, we can end childhood hunger in America.
