Palm Springs, California (NAPSI) - At a time of year when some children dream of holiday treats, others dream of eating regularly. Fortunately, there are things you can do to help the estimated one out of five children in the U.S. at risk of hunger.

Here are some tips:

• Purchase No Kid Hungry $10 Holiday Gift Tags: Every dollar you donate helps connect a child in need to 10 meals.

• Donate the Cost of Your Lunch: Whether you decide to brown-bag it or stick with your normal lunch routine, donating the cost of one of your meals—around $10—to a charity that helps to fight hunger can help to make a difference.

• Support the No Kid Hungry Campaign: Through its No Kid Hungry campaign, Share Our Strength is working to end childhood hunger in America by surrounding kids with nutritious food where they live, learn and play.

Individuals can start by taking the No Kid Hungry pledge. Then they can participate in a number of ways, from holding bake sales and dinners designed to raise awareness and money to support the program to creating online communities that focus on eliminating childhood hunger in a specific location.

•Keep an eye out for special opportunities to support No Kid Hungry. Check out Williams-Sonoma, Hickory Farms, Arby’s, Whole Foods Market, The Land of Nod, Tastefully Simple, and Chicago Metallic.
