Breakfast is powerful stuff. Did you know that school breakfast can have a potentially dramatic effect on students? No Kid Hungry, a national campaign focused on ending childhood hunger in America, found that students who eat school breakfast have been shown to achieve 17.5% higher scores on standardized math tests and attend an average of 1.5 more days of school per year.
This year, Smithfield is once again proud to partner with No Kid Hungry in the fight against childhood hunger in communities across America. We’re doubling our commitment and donating enough for 2 million meals to children in communities across America. That’s a lot of breakfasts for kids who otherwise might not get the chance to start their day with a proper meal.
Join us in the fight against childhood hunger and help us prove that breakfast really is the most important meal of the day. Share your breakfast on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, and for every breakfast shared with #BreakfastPower, we’ll donate enough for ten meals* to No Kid Hungry.

Contributions will be used to reach the highest number of children facing hunger in America. Share Our Strength is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization. Smithfield Foods will donate $1 for every social media post shared with the hashtag #BreakfastPower up to $50,000 to No Kid Hungry from July 5, 2018 to December 31, 2018. Smithfield will make a minimum donation of $200,000 to No Kid Hungry during this campaign.
