Our Work

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

On a national level, we partner with Starlight Children’s Foundation® and Feeding America® to deliver impact across the country. Through our partnership with Starlight Children’s Foundation, we are building 10 Starlight Sites – bright, kid-friendly spaces like therapy kitchens, playrooms, teen lounges and gardens – to bring joy to kids staying in the hospital. Through Feeding America, we are able to send kids home from school on the weekends with backpacks of food and reach a vast network of food banks.

Locally, we work with hundreds of nonprofits making a difference in the lives of kids battling hunger or illness.
