International nonprofit Feed the Children and FOX’s hit culinary competition series, MASTERCHEF JUNIOR, are partnering throughout March to fight childhood hunger.

The organizations will unite for a 30-day donation campaign, End Hunger: Dare to Donate, as well as a three-week social media campaign, to bring awareness to childhood hunger across America. During the social media campaign, kids 13 and younger will be able to use everyday items (and their imaginations) to create delicious dishes inspired by FOX’s MASTERCHEF JUNIOR.

“We recognize hunger can’t be fought alone, but by working together, we can provide food and essentials to millions of children and families who live in poverty,” said Travis Arnold, President and Chief Executive Officer of Feed the Children. “Hope for a better future is made possible, thanks to our partners at FOX’s MASTERCHEF JUNIOR.”

In MASTERCHEF JUNIOR’s special two-hour Season Seven premiere, airing Tuesday, March 12 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX, the Top 24 junior home cooks in America arrive in the MASTERCHEF JUNIOR kitchen and are immediately put to the test to prove they can master any challenge thrown their way – from elevating classic breakfast and lunch dishes, to mystery box challenges, to making as many perfect banana splits as possible. These chef-testants begin to learn the importance of teamwork and speed in the kitchen, while facing two sets of eliminations.

MASTERCHEF JUNIOR is produced by Endemol Shine North America and One Potato Two Potato and is based on a format created by Franc Roddam and Endemol Shine”.
