For a kid struggling with hunger, one meal could mean the difference between having the energy to succeed in school and failing a test, or between staying healthy and getting sick. Whether you are trick-or-treating for non-perishable food or doing a food drive leading up to Thanksgiving, you can make an impact in your local community! To stand up to hunger, click here and use your WE Code (6C1FB1).
