No More Hunger

  • No more 5 year olds going days without food.
  • No more grandmothers calling to say “It doesn’t matter about me, but please feed my grandchildren.”
  • No more children sent to school when they are sick because it is the only place they can get food.

What We Are Doing

  • Bringing back the buffalo.
  • Putting food in the youth centers.
  • Opening food distribution and youth centers in every district.
  • Making healthy food and snacks available all month long.

 

  • Support the End Hunger Project Each month.
  • Raise awareness about the Lakota by sharing our communications on social media with family and friends.

Helping Kids Survive

In order to help kids survive, we need to address the root cause of suicide: hopelessness.

The lack of basic human needs (food, shelter, belongingness) are breeding grounds for hopelessness. Hunger, cold and social isolation rob the body and mind of the will to live.

Our programs work to fill in the gaps where basic needs are lacking. The end hunger project, wood program and youth programs are all part of suicide prevention.
