Our Impact

Poverty in America

The economy may be improving since the Great Recession, but the recovery is still leaving many of Americans who were hit the hardest behind. Millions of people are still struggling to get by because of underemployment, stagnant wages and rising costs of living. In fact, more than 46 million people still turn to the Feeding America network each year for extra support.

Our Recognition

Since our founding, the Cradles to Crayons vision has been to create a future where childhood poverty no longer exists. To help make this a reality, we’ve adopted a mission to connect communities that have with communities that need. Every day, we provide children from birth through age 12 with the essentials they need to thrive — at home, school and play. Thanks to our amazing network of volunteers, families, corporate donors and service partners. Learn more about our awards and recognition >
