The statistics are scary: 1 in 5 kids in America is hungry. That means 16 million kids don’t get enough to eat and are attending school on empty stomachs.
In September—aka Hunger Action Month—companies and nonprofits alike are honoring this cause through awareness campaigns, food drives, and employee volunteering. We’re hosting a Tweetup on the subject with some great guests.

Community Affairs Manager Amanda Bauman will be joining us via @Amanda_Bauman. The CSR team will chime in through @CampbellCSR.
