Help SPOON Help Kids

SPOON is committed to building a world where all children get the nutrition and care they need to grow and thrive. Our work is made possible by the generous support of individuals, corporations, foundations and program partners.

There are many ways you can help SPOON:

Fundraise for SPOON

Raise money for SPOON with a custom fundraising page and share it with your friends and family through email and social media. All gifts will go where needed most. At the end of the campaign, you will receive a letter with the total amount of gifts raised, and the names of individuals who contributed.

Katie decided to celebrate her 7th birthday by fundraising for SPOON. Katie’s siblings were adopted from Russia, so she understood the need for children without families to receive proper nutrition. Katie’s mom reached out to SPOON and our team built a customized web page for her party. Now Katie and her mom want to encourage others to celebrate their next birthday or special occasion by helping other children in need.
