“Our annual Tools for Change campaign kicks off Williams Sonoma’s efforts to raise both money and awareness for the incredible work No Kid Hungry is doing to end childhood hunger in America,” said Williams Sonoma President, Ryan Ross. “Since we started working with No Kid Hungry over 10 years ago, the generosity of our customers, colleagues and corporate partners have helped us raise over $13M providing more than 130 million meals to children in need across the country.”

“Millions more kids face hunger today than before the pandemic hit, and hungry kids and their families will feel the impact of this crisis well into the future,” said Billy Shore, founder and executive chair of Share Our Strength, the organization behind the No Kid Hungry campaign. “Childhood hunger remains solvable, but it’s up to all of us to do our part. We are incredibly grateful to the group of celebrities and chefs who come together each year to support this important work and for partners like Williams Sonoma, who make it easy for consumers to get involved, empower their dollars and do their part in helping to make no kid hungry a reality.”

Tools For Change participant, Hilary Duff added, “Kids deserve to be kids and live out their wildest imagination and dreams, without struggle or the worry of a hungry belly. When I look at my three kids, it breaks my heart to know there are millions of kids out there who live with hunger. I hope my spatula inspires you to live out your passion and creativity in the kitchen and is a reminder that you’re helping kids across the country do the same. When kids have access to three meals a day, they can dream big and the possibilities are endless.”
