No child should go hungry in America. But in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, 1 in 6 kids could face hunger. No Kid Hungry is working to end childhood hunger by helping launch and improve programs that give all kids the healthy food they need to thrive. This is a problem we know how to solve. No Kid Hungry is a campaign of Share Our Strength, an organization committed to ending hunger and poverty.

Founded by Vanessa Hudgens and Oliver Trevena, Caliwater is organic, antioxidant rich water made from cactus with a conscious mission. Caliwater hopes to promote healthy, eco-friendly lifestyles and to make the world a better place. With up to 75% of Americans being considered chronically dehydrated, Caliwater, featuring the Prickly Pear Cactus “superfruit,” offers a tasty, yet functional alternative to water that also presents numerous benefits for health and well-being, including 5 naturally occurring electrolytes to boost hydration.

Caliwater’s goal is not only to provide these health and wellness benefits to our consumers, but also to raise awareness about the fight against childhood hunger by partnering with No Kid Hungry, with a donation from every can sold going to the cause year-round. 

While childhood hunger has been a lasting issue, the pandemic increased the number of children facing food shortage or insecurity, exponentially. This makes our support more crucial now than ever.
