Bringing Awareness to Childhood Hunger in Ohio
Our mission boils down to a single staggering statistic: more than 500,000 children in Ohio live in food insecure homes. For 50 years, Children’s Hunger Alliance has been a leader in addressing childhood hunger. We provide food insecure children access to healthy meals, nutrition and physical education while advocating for legislation to improve the welfare of our youth.
The Lunch Money Challenge is an effective way for others to unite with us to end childhood hunger. Individuals and businesses from around the state can take an active role in addressing the very real problem of childhood hunger which impacts our children every day.
Investing In a Healthier Ohio
Proper childhood nutrition leads to healthy, long-term development. The continued issue of hunger in our community is a shared concern for all Ohioans. CHA allows individuals and businesses to directly invest in the future of our children through a variety of effective programs.
Uniting with Children’s Hunger Alliance to end childhood hunger will have a lasting impact on our children’s future and our communities.

- Afterschool Programs
Additionally, our advocacy work focuses on increasing participation in the following:
