jcp cares is about more than just doing good. We care about doing good in the best possible way, and we promise that our responsibility to each community we serve doesn't end at our front door. Join jcp cares by rounding up your purchase in stores this November to benefit the No Kid Hungry campaign.

No child should grow up hungry in America, but one in five children struggles with hunger. Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry campaign is ending childhood hunger in this nation by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need, every day. By connecting kids in need with nutritious food and teaching their families how to cook healthy, affordable meals, Share Our Strength surrounds children with healthy food where they live, learn and play.
