Three Square Food Bank continues the fight against hunger with the return of its Bag Childhood Hunger Campaign on Saturday, April 1. Donations made through Wednesday, May 31 will have double the impact, thanks to generous matching sponsors Nevada Gold Mines operated by Barrick and NV Energy Foundation.

More than 131,000 children in Southern Nevada, or one in four, are living in a food-insecure household. With a significant number of families still struggling to put food on their tables, tens of thousands of Clark County School District students continue to rely on free or reduced-price meal programs.

"Proper nutrition is critical at every age, but even more so for children to help them grow up healthy and strong," said Three Square Interim President and CEO Michelle Beck. "2023 marks 11 years of our Bag Childhood Hunger Campaign, which allows us to double-down on food insecurity by providing more food to Southern Nevada's youth."

The Bag Childhood Hunger campaign supports Three Square's childhood nutrition programs, including Kids Cafe, BackPack for Kids and Meet Up and Eat Up. These programs ensure that children receive wholesome, nutritious meals after school, over the weekends and during the summer months.

An element of the Bag Childhood Hunger campaign is "Fashion for Three Square," a special invitation-only event held in May, imagined and underwritten by the Bennett Family Foundation, where Three Square will thank its donors for their ongoing support.

Three Square is one step closer to ending childhood hunger thanks to the following presenting sponsors: Caesars Foundation, Jill & Frank Fertitta, III, Teresa & Lorenzo Fertitta, Gene Haas Foundation, Green Valley Grocery, Health Plan of Nevada, Ted & Maria Quirk, Rachel Shiffrin & David Hirschfeld, Station Casinos, and Top Rank, Inc.
