About the Hunger Free America Child Nutrition Fellowship program:


The Child Nutrition Fellowship program is sponsored by Hunger Free America and funded by the Walmart Foundation and the Rachel Ray Foundation.

Each summer, Hunger Free NYC, a division of Hunger Free America, works to spread the work about free summer meals for children in New York City.
