Why does winter break mean hungry holidays for children in 1 in 5 American homes? We examine the developmental, educational, and economic impacts of hunger among children and examine the tough choices many families have to make between feeding their children and providing medical care, transportation, and even basic utilities such as heat.

In our Hero of the Week segment, we celebrate the efforts of incredible kids like Will Lourcey, Joshua Williams, Brittany Amano, Lucy Blossom, Camille and Gabrielle Posard, and Kymani Quarrie to combat hunger and meet Adib Ayay, who uses his skills in technology and business to help farmers in his homeland of Morocco better feed their families and communities.
