LOS ANGELES, June 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — A staggering one in four children in the United States could face hunger this year due to the coronavirus and, with school meals programs closed for the summer, kids urgently need help. That’s why King’s Hawaiian is proudly partnering with No Kid Hungry to help provide up to 1.5 million meals to kids in need, during this crisis and beyond.*

In addition, King’s Hawaiian is helping raise awareness around all of the work No Kid Hungry does by launching «100 Delish Days of Summer,» a cookbook created in partnership with Delish that is available now at grocery stores nationwide and online at KingsHawaiian.com. Within the cookbook and throughout the course of the season, King’s Hawaiian will share No Kid Hungry’s Free Meals Finder, an online map that shows parents and caregivers where they can find free meals for their children in their community. Also included in the cookbook are one hundred family-friendly recipes perfect for spending time in the backyard with family.
