“America’s kids need us. Millions of vulnerable children are losing the healthy meals they depend on as the coronavirus closes schools nationwide.”No Kid Hungry
To date, Williams-Sonoma, Inc. has donated over $10 million dollars to No Kid Hungry in their fight to end childhood hunger.

Staring March 21, 2020, customers can give through digital donation pages at Pottery Barn, Pottery Barn Kids, Pottery Barn Teen, Williams Sonoma, West Elm, Rejuvenation and Mark and Graham. We’re also organizing email and social media campaigns to raise funds.
As of March 21, No Kid Hungry has given out $1M in grants with more to come.
