National Youth Day 2018 Social Toolkit

Generation No Kid Hungry and Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation are planting the flag on Wednesday, February 21st, as #NationalYouthDay, a day to celebrate YOU and YOUR contributions to the critical problems our country faces. This year, we are focused on celebrating the impact you’ve made in addressing the issue of hunger in America. Our hope for future years is to continue to build this day pulling in more leaders, new partners and industries to celebrate young people, doing real things to solve the problems our country faces.

This day is a day to celebrate you.

This is a day for you to share what you have already done to make an impact on the issue of child hunger in your community. And, it’s a day for us, as the organizations that you work with, to celebrate YOUR contributions by showing lots of love on social media as you share throughout the day.

Here are few ways to get involved:
