Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Food, Food, Agriculture & Nutrition, Nutrition

Mission:

Children’s Hunger Alliance is a statewide non-profit organization committed to breaking the cycle of childhood hunger through education, leadership, advocacy, and service.

Programs:

Children’s Hunger Alliance provides healthy United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) meals and snacks directly to childcare homes and afterschool sites. Our agency is a sponsor of the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP), the federal program that provides healthy meals and snacks to at-risk children in home child care and afterschool sites. We currently partner with 2,000 home-based childcare providers who care for approximately 22,000 children statewide. Without this program, many low-income providers would not have the resources to provide children with healthy meals. We also partner with afterschool sites to serve nutritious food at little or no cost to the sites or families. These programs are vital to the children’s well-being, since many of theses children cannot depend on healthy evening meals at home. In 2009, Children's Hunger Alliance fed an average of 1,820 at-risk children per month at over 60 afterschool sites statewide.

Having been involved with a number of non-profit organizations throughout Ohio, CHA stands out for its tremendous efforts to reduce childhood hunger. As a mother, it is painful to comprehend that there are children that are under nourished right here in our own backyard. CHA has recognized the need to support families through direct feeding programs, educational outreach, and through a number of results-driven programs that benefit children right here in Ohio. The staff is remarkable in its ability to deliver results based on the mission of this very important organization.

CHA is a mission-driven organization making a difference for children every day in the State of Ohio. Its tagline says it all: feeding hungry minds and bodies. Whether assisting day care providers in 80 of the 88 counties in Ohio to provide nutritious food to children in their care, advocating and educating school districts as to how to run school breakfast programs or providing after school programs that teach healthy food choices and an active lifestyle, CHA is improving the lives and wellbeing of children now and for their futures. In the last several years it has expanded its geographical reach to Cincinnati, Southeast and Northwest Ohio, complementing its years of work in Cental Ohio, Dayton and Cleveland.

The broad scope of Childrern's Hunger Alliance results in touching a vulnerable population throughout Ohio. From toddlers in home day care to High School students preparing for testing, good nutritious food provides a foundation for success. I am please that physical fitness has become a focus as well.
