Waste less, give more.

The average American family throws away $1,866 per year in wasted food. Meanwhile, children around the world and right here in the U.S. continue to face life-threatening food insecurity. You can help end child hunger by reducing your food waste and donating your savings to kids and families who struggle with hunger.

Through emergency food distributions, school lunch programs, nutrition education and more, ChildFund works around the world to make sure that children have enough on their plates. How far can your savings go for kids facing hunger?


Turn your savings into food for kids’ growing bodies and minds.
