Gov. Quinn announced a new state partnership in an effort to end childhood hunger in Illinois.

The Greater Chicago Food Depository is teaming up with Share Our Strength, the nation's leading child anti-hunger organization.

The 'Illinois No-Kid Hungry Campaign' will work to teach more families about federally funded programs like school breakfasts and summer meals.

Illinois is one of 18 states joining the effort.
