Square One Final Tag-RGB.jpg

Square One recognizes that hunger and lack of nutritious food have long-term
consequences for children

Square One plans, prepares and serves balanced, nutritious breakfast, lunch and snacks to 500 children each day.  The Square One education team incorporates gardening into the curriculum.  They spend their summer months planting, watering and nurturing their garden, followed by the reward of enjoying their fresh vegetables.

AT NO KID HUNGRY, THAT'S OUR PROMISE.
IF IT SOUNDS SIMPLE, THAT'S BECAUSE IT IS.

That doesn’t mean ending childhood hunger is easy. We know what works, and we’ve made extraordinary progress for kids and families.

But the job isn’t done, and won’t be done until we’ve met that promise and every single child in America has the food they need to grow up healthy and strong.
