Child hunger is a big problem all across the country.  You would think that in 2021 there would be less issues with those types of things, but many still suffer from not enough to eat.  Every Meal, is an organization that works hard to help with child hunger, and offers many programs throughout the year to keep kids fed.  You can even help them out by donating to the cause on their website linked to above.
