Feeding Potential: The Role of Food Banks and School Meal Programs in Addressing Childhood Hunger


One in nine people are facing hunger. For children, hunger is especially devastating, with implications such as delayed development, chronic illness, and behavioral problems. School feeding programs and breakfast clubs are critical to helping ensure children are provided with a nourishing meal, time to bond with other students and school staff, and other opportunities that improve well being.

Kellogg Company and The Global FoodBanking Network are proud to bring together key stakeholders for a virtual discussion on October 26, 2022. Join us as we discuss the role that food banks and school meal programs play in addressing food insecurity and explore Kellogg-funded research that shows school meals provide the opportunity for social development, improved behavior, and other benefits.

Together, we can advance a sustainable and equitable food system to create better days for the next generation.
