Chrysler brand is teaming up with No Kid Hungry, a national campaign that is focused on ending child hunger in America today. Chrysler’s support will help No Kid Hungry continue its work to improve the lives of families across the country by ensuring children have the food they need to succeed.
According to No Kid Hungry, one in six kids in America lives with hunger. When kids don’t have the food they need, they are more likely to struggle in school, miss class and not feel well. No Kid Hungry is helping to end childhood hunger in America by making sure kids get the food they need every day. Since the launch of the campaign in 2010, one-third fewer children are now facing hunger. Chrysler is working with the campaign to provide up to 1.5 million meals.

“Through our partnership with No Kid Hungry, the Chrysler brand is able to help bring awareness to childhood hunger and support the organization’s work across America,” says Steve Beahm, Head of Passenger Car Brands – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America. “Childhood hunger is a solvable problem. No child in America should go without a meal and, as a trusted family brand, our work with this campaign will help ensure more kids across the country have the food they need to learn and grow.”
“There is no possible excuse for children to be hungry in this great country of ours. Yet it happens – every day,” said Tom Nelson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Share Our Strength, the organization behind the No Kid Hungry campaign. “We are grateful for partners like Chrysler who are committed to helping us end childhood hunger once and for all.”
