Saquon Barkley Partners With No Kid Hungry To Fight Child Hunger

After more than a month without sports and tedious online classes, we could all use a little feel-good content these days.

Saquon Barkley stepped in to do just that Saturday evening when he announced he’s partnering with Pepsi to fight child hunger through No Kid Hungry.

“There are a lot of kids that rely on school meals and with us staying inside the house and trying to beat this virus, that presents another problem for those kids,” Barkley said in the video. “Let’s make sure no kid goes hungry and let’s make a difference in a lot of these families’ lives.”

No Kid Hungry was certainly thankful for Barkley’s endorsement. Since the coronavirus pandemic began in the United States, the organization has donated approximately $5.3 million to 191 organizations in 44 states as well as Washington, D.C. According to No Kid Hungry, 2.1 million meals per day will be served to children using the funds raised so far.

This certainly isn’t the first time Barkley has been in the news for his charitable efforts. Back in 2018, he announced he’d raise money to support 22q, a rare genetic disease, through the NFL’s “My Cause, My Cleats” initiative.
