A national campaign to fight childhood hunger across the U.S., No Kid Hungry, is getting support from the Chrysler brand.

“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.”

Kids who don’t have the food they need to nourish their bodies not only endure health issues but also face hardships in school as well, according to No Kid Hungry, which notes that one in six kids across the country don’t have enough to eat.

The campaign, which launched in 2010, has helped to decrease the staggering number of kids who lack adequate nutrition by one-third. With Chrysler’s support, the campaign hopes to distribute 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.”

Chrysler has already supported the campaign with the August event of Taste the Nation in Chicago. September will feature Chefs Cycle, a three-day 300-mile ride that features chefs and celebrities pedaling for the greater good. Another event, Bake Sale for No Kid Hungry, encourages everyone across the country to hold their own bake sales to support the initiative.
