KROST X No Kid Hungry: A Mission to Feed the Youth
No child should have to question where their next meal will come from.As of April this year, as many as 1 in 6 children in America have the potential to face hunger. That means that about 13 million kids are either missing meals, malnourished, or questioning where their next meal will come from. In order to resolve this epidemic, families must be given the resources they need to provide meals so that their children can survive and flourish. Our work with No Kid Hungry strives to ensure just that: providing kids across America with consistent & reliable access to food.
No Kid Hungry is a non-profit organization with a mission to resolve food insecurity among children,
“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.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.”
At the heart of their work, No Kid Hungry does not just work to feed a child that is hungry today, but to protect the youth of America from never going hungry again through impressive initiatives that include school meal programs, grants, and effective advocacy.

Our work with No Kid Hungry gives us the opportunity to form lasting impacts on the lives of thousands of children across America. The joint initiative will help support the cause through proceeds from our new Support Your Friends by KROST basics collection, in which every purchase donates $5 to No Kid Hungry.
KROST Tackles Food Insecurity
Our brand’s mission depends on prioritizing purpose; we look at what is going on in the world to lead each collection and use apparel as one vehicle to help resolve different societal challenges. Since the onset of COVID, 10% of all adults in the country reported that their household sometimes or often didn’t have enough to eat in the last seven days. As of February 2021, more than 1 in 7 American adults with children (14.5%) reported that their children were not getting enough to eat.
Over the last few months, prioritizing food insecurity has been a compelling task for our team. Gratefully, through partnerships with Foodbank for New York City, New York Restoration Projects, and now No Kid Hungry, we have been able to actively support the fight against food insecurity.
