​​​​Here is our reality: childhood hunger is an epidemic. There are approximately 17 million children in North America that don't know where their next meal is coming from and it is happening right here at home, right in our own backyards. This is just not acceptable. 

The Word Woman LLC has joined forces with corporate partners and national nonprofits, and together are working on a single mission: to fight childhood hunger while empowering families to live healthier lives. Through
Project Feeding Kids, your nonprofit can lower your monthly operating costs while helping to feed needy families and children in your community! Learn more here.
