Help fight child poverty in
the U.S.
  Not today, tomorrow or any other day...

I won't let poverty rob American kids of their hopes and dreams.

For U.S. families living on tight budgets, food may be lower priority Nearly 50 million Americans, including 15.9 million children, lived in food-insecure households in 2012, meaning they had difficulty at some time feeding all family members for lack of resources. World Vision plans to distribute 40,000 Family Food Kits this year, enough to provide 600,000 meals.

This summer, help feed a hungry child in the U.S. Without school lunches, summer is a season of hunger for many U.S. children. For $18, you can provide 15 nutritious meals for a family in the U.S.
