Did you know that 1 in 6 kids in America lives with hunger? That’s millions of kids that go to school everyday on an empty stomach, because there isn’t enough food at home. If that isn’t enough, research shows America’s teachers are spending an average of $300 each year from their own pockets to buy food for their students. But, as parents and teachers know, hungry kids can’t learn.

The good news is that childhood hunger is a problem that we can work together to solve! Last week, I had the opportunity to attend a fun and informative community event called Powered by Breakfast at the world-famous Santa Monica Pier hosted by No Kid Hungry.
While in attendance, I played a few classic games of corn hole, listened to an impressive female DJ mix some great tunes and hopped on a stationary bike for 30 seconds to help raise funds to fight child hunger. Even the smallest of folks got involved by coloring pretty pictures and sampling delicious snacks provided by Chobani.
