Here’s more information about this initiative from State Stores:

Across America, 13 million kids live with hunger, and 22 million rely on free or reduced-priced school lunches. The Stage community of stores is partnering with No Kid Hungry to ensure children have access to the nutrition they need through programs in their schools and communities such as school breakfast and summer meals.

This July, in time for back-to-school season, Stage’s Community Counts program is giving guests the opportunity to support No Kid Hungry through purchasing food-themed lunch totes, water bottles and drawstring packs that feature unique characters and fun sayings kids will love and parents will approve.

Stage Stores will donate percent of the retail sales of each item sold to No Kid Hungry, which will fund efforts to provide meals to children in need. Stage also will donate a dollar for each social media post mentioning #fuelkidsfutures and invites guests to share favorite meals that fuel their day or their child’s day. With as little as $5, No Kid Hungry can provide up to 50 meals for a child.
