Providing the simple joys of childhood to kids battling hunger or illness

What We Do

When children face health and hunger issues, it robs them of the simple joys of childhood.  The Joy in Childhood Foundation's goal is to help kids feel like kids, even on their most difficult days.

We provide grants to hundreds of nonprofits each year making a difference in the lives of kids battling hunger or illness across the country.
