For the last few years, I’ve enjoyed participating in Moms Fighting Hunger and No Kid Hungry activities during September. I’ve been amazed at all the creative ideas I’ve seen online for helping kids get involved.
Hunger Awareness Activities for Kids
“Sesame Street: Growing Hope Against Hunger Highlight Reel”
“Every Can Counts” by the Children of Moms Fighting Hunger
You’ll find lots of great hunger awareness activities for kids in the Moms Fighting Hunger blog hops:
I also want to highlight a few inspiring blog posts and hunger awareness resources for kids.
