Personalization Mall has partnered with No Kid Hungry to help fight childhood hunger in America. Here’s how you can get involved during our Season of Sharing.
The number of children facing hunger has reached record levels during the coronavirus pandemic, which means that now 1 in 4 kids could be going hungry. Join us as we help kids in America get the meals they need. Now through December 24, 2020 Personalization Mall will donate a percentage of proceeds from each gift purchased from our Season of Sharing collection to No Kid Hungry, with a minimum commitment of $50,000.
The Need Is Real
The coronavirus pandemic has exacerbated food insecurity across the country. The number of children who don’t have enough to eat has skyrocketed this year, according to an analysis performed by the Brookings Institution that examined data collected by the U.S. Census Bureau.

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, hunger in U.S. households has more than doubled this year. Brookings estimates that about 13.9 million children (under 18 years old) are living in households that are struggling to put food on the table. During the course of a typical school year, many families rely on school meals to feed their children. However, with this year’s school closures, this resource has not been available to many families.
Government help has not been enough. The Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) program, created by the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, was intended to help families who lost access to free or reduced price school meals for their kids; however, the program expired at the end of September and yet many schools still remain closed.
