Skai Jackson, has truly become another prolific voice of this generation. Having received multiple awards and recognition for her philanthropy, the actress best known for her role as Zuri Ross on Disney’s Jesse and Bunk’d is making sure to spread the word about No Kid Hungry. In addition to all of her other commitments, Jackson has taken to the streets on a press tour, sharing her passion for No Kid Hungry, encouraging others to get involved.
In a recent interview with Teen Vogue, the starlet states, “I’ve been wanting to get involved with a charity, so when I learned about No Kid Hungry, I knew I wanted to help raise awareness about this important issue. It’s crazy that millions of kids in the world are hungry. All kids should be able to have healthy food to eat and should not have to worry about when their next meal will be. I recently visited a classroom that serves healthy breakfast with No Kid Hungry. Seeing how happy the students were opened my eyes to how much of an impact a healthy meal has on a child.”
No Kid Hungry is an organization dedicated to providing children with the nutrition that they need, in an effort to make sure that every child in America does not go to bed hungry. According to the No Kid Hungry website, 1 in 5 children do not get enough food to eat every day. This has become something that Jackson is extremely focused on in addition to her work with anti-bullying.
