Coronavirus Impact On Hunger
Before the Coronavirus pandemic according to the USDA approximately 11 million kids were living in food insecure homes. Since the pandemic hit here in the United States 18 MILLION kids are projected to face food insecurity... That is 7 MILLION MORE CHILDREN right here in the United States that will go without or have limited access to healthy food.
Spreading Rainbows chose to support No Kid Hungry because they work hard everyday to help get healthy food to those kids in need. Very little money goes a long way and can help feed a lot of kids. At No Kid Hungry as little as $1.00 can help provide 10 meals to a child in need.
Since the launch of Spreading Rainbows on February 6, 2020, Spreading Rainbows has been able to raise by the sale of Stella's handmade bracelets $700 in donations = 7,000 meals to a child in need via No Kid Hungry!!!!! Each quarter Spreading Rainbows will be making donations on the money raised to No Kid Hungry.
Watch out for "special" upcoming fundraising campaigns to help "Fight Childhood Hunger" that Spreading Rainbows will be doing.
