End 68 Hours of Hunger

End 68 Hours of Hunger is a public not-for-profit effort to confront the approximately 68 hours of hunger that some school children experience between the free lunch they receive at school on Friday afternoon and the free breakfast they receive at school on Monday morning.

This weekend program, established in New Hampshire in 2011, puts nourishing food in the hands of school children to carry them through the weekend.

We are entirely volunteer based and 100 percent of funds go directly to feeding at-risk children unless otherwise designated by the donor.

Childhood hunger – or food insecurity – is a national problem. It occurs when children receive insufficient food on a regular basis and in many cases, missing meals entirely. After a while, these children also experience ‘fear of hunger’ that affects their behavior as much as physical hunger affects their bodies.
