Crenshaw by Katherine Applegate

Fight Hunger with Crenshaw

Crenshaw is imaginary. Childhood hunger isn’t.

    Did you know...
  • Nearly one in five kids in America lives in a household that struggles to put food on the table.
  • Three out of five K–8 public school teachers say they regularly see students come to school hungry.
  • Teachers of hungry kids spend, on average, about $37 of their own money each month to buy food for students.

How You Can Help

    Organize a food drive for your school or community.

  • Download the digital tool kit to help promote the food drive in your community!

    But I can’t organize my own food drive!

  • Bring nonperishable food items to a local food pantry.
  • Make a monetary donation to No Kid Hungry, and learn more about how you can fight childhood hunger on their website.
