Our Mission

Child Hunger Outreach Partners’ (CHOP) mission is to end childhood hunger in the United States and create an entire generation that doesn’t know hunger.


Where We Started

CHOP humbly began serving 45 middle school students in Towanda, PA after the founder’s daughter shared on her first day of middle school, that if students did not have lunch money, they simply didn’t eat. She begged her mother to do something. After hearing the shocking news, Dani knew in addition to a nutritious meal, these children also needed an advocate. So, she went to work.

Since 2018, CHOP has grown to serve tens of thousands of students weekly in  Maryland and Pennsylvania. As we move closer to meeting our mission of ending childhood hunger, we continue to build partnerships across the country and continue to launch program branches in each state.
