All over the world, children face the problem of not having enough food to eat. In America, more than 13 million kids are dealing with that reality. That means that one out of every six kids in the US is at risk of hunger. And, when school's out for summer, the challenges that these children and their parents face become even more difficult, as they cannot count on free and reduced school lunch programs to provide them with these important meals.

Here are some practical ideas, based on the initiative's Hungry to Help Family Action Plan (created in collaboration with Scholastic), on how to talk to your kids about hunger and how your family can make a difference this summer -- and even have some fun doing it.
