Breakfast Is Powerful Stuff

Did you know that school breakfast can have a potentially dramatic effect on students? No Kid Hungry found that students who eat school breakfast have been shown to achieve 17.5% higher scores on standardized math tests and attend 1.5 more days of school per year.

Smithfield is partnering with No Kid Hungry, an organization committed to providing innovative solutions to combat childhood hunger, to donate one million meals* to children in communities across America. And you can help us reach our goal in one of two ways.

  1. Visit your local retailer and purchase any Smithfield breakfast product.
  2. Share your Smithfield breakfast on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
    1. Facebook(@CookingWithSmithfield)– post a picture of your Smithfield breakfast
    2. Instagram(@SmithfieldBrand) – post a picture of your Smithfield breakfast, tag it #BreakfastPower
    3. Twitter(@SmithfieldBrand) – tweet #BreakfastPower

Join us in the fight against childhood hunger and help us prove that breakfast really is the most important meal of the day.  To find out more about the amazing things No Kid Hungry is doing and how you can help in your community visit NoKidHungry.org.


*No Kid Hungry is an organization committed to providing innovative solutions to combat childhood hunger. One meal is equivalent to 10 cents. This amount is based on the individual experiences of No Kid Hungry grant recipients. Contributions will be used to reach the highest number of children facing hunger in America. No Kid Hungry is a non-profit 501c3 organization. For every Smithfield breakfast product purchase, and/or every Smithfield breakfast image posted on social media and/or every #BreakfastPower posted from September 1st to October 31st, we’ll donate 10 cents, enough for 1 meal, up to $100k.
