As the Back-to-School shopping season kicks into high gear and reminds students of their fleeting summer freedom, parents are crafting their shopping lists for the new school year. Unfortunately, with school out of session during the summer, many kids in America who rely on school lunches go hungry, and don’t get the nutrition they need. In fact, one out of every six kids in America today faces hunger. That’s why Newegg is helping No Kid Hungry® to turn this situation around. During the Newegg Back-to-School Season (July 18 – Aug 31), Newegg is dedicated to providing 750,000 meals to hungry children through a brand-new partnership with No Kid Hungry, and we want you to join us. To show that Newegg is taking a stand, for every dollar that customers donate, Newegg will match the donation up to $75,000. It is easy to help: there are three options for customers to donate to the cause, with each dollar No Kid Hungry receives providing up to 10 meals to kids in need. Customers can donate as much as they want, with easy-option values of a $1 donation for 10 meals, a $5 donation for 50 meals and a $10 donation for 100 meals.
Mission to end child hunger
No Kid Hungry is ending childhood hunger today by connecting children in need to programs like school breakfast and summer meals, and educating families to cook healthy, affordable meals. This mission resonates with us at Newegg, as we know the Back-to-School season is a time for getting prepared for the year ahead and planning for success. The best computer is still a well-functioning brain and we want the next generation to have the tools and proper nutrition vital for developing healthy minds. According to a No Kid Hungry report, children who eat breakfast score an average of 17.5% higher on math tests, and attend an average of 1.5 more days of school per year. This equates to higher graduation rates, which leads to higher paying jobs and a lower chance of experiencing hunger as adults. Customers interested in contributing to No Kid Hungry can donate via the links below at any time between July 18 – September 15.
