It's SUMMERTIME! Summertime is awesome, but unfortunately not for everyone. During the school year, 21 million school children receive free or reduced-price lunch -- but during summer, 90% of those 21 million kids have limited or no access to meals they receive when school is in session. So, in order to make this summer MORE awesome, Kid President has teamed with ConAgra Foods to raise awareness of child hunger this summer. The ConAgra Foods Foundation is donating the monetary equivalent of one meal to Feeding America for every view, like, or share of this video! Thanks to your incredibly positive response so early-on, the ConAgra Foods Foundation has doubled its commitment to 2 million meals.
