Millions of children live in households where there is not consistent access to food throughout the year. At ConAgra Foods, we know the power of food and the difference it can make in a child's education, health and life. Delivering everyday food in extraordinary ways means ensuring children have access to and knowledge about food, putting solutions to child hunger within reach.

The ConAgra Foods Foundation began its journey in the fight against child hunger in 1993 by investing in the national expansion of Kids Cafe after-school feeding programs. Since that time, our Foundation has infused more than $60 million into leading anti-hunger non-profit organizations that align with our purpose and goals:
- Pursuing sustainable solutions that increase food security among children and help families maximize their food resources
- Providing kids and families with innovative nutrition and food skills education that is culturally relevant and leads to behavior change
- Enhancing organizational capacity and knowledge to serve more people in a more efficient way
- Building a community of people who are passionate about ending child hunger and inspiring them to get involved
We are doing our part to make a difference through the power of food — one child, one meal, one champion at a time.
Child food insecurity in the United States results from numerous complex and interwoven factors. The ConAgra Foods Foundation is committed to investing in anti-hunger strategies, programs and research that are effective and impactful, and recognizes that ending child hunger in the United States requires action toward the most informed solutions. As such, continued education is a key component to the Foundation's success.
Going forward, the Community Impact Grants Program will not be accepting unsolicited requests. The Foundation is using the next year to pilot a targeted anti-hunger approach, with a focus on the company's operating communities. Results and lessons from this pilot will inform future grant investments to ensure Foundation funding yields maximum impact. Please check back in December 2015 for new information on how to apply for support through the Community Impact Grants Program.
