Please join the iForum: Power Up with Summer Meals in Schools!, co-hosted by the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of Agriculture this Wednesday, May 11th, from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.

This online webinar will discuss proven strategies for community stakeholders to develop and expand USDA Summer Meals Programs in partnership with local schools. Please sign up HERE, and forward the invitation to peers who might benefit from this information.

USDA Summer Meals Programs help close the nutrition gap children face over the summer months—a time when children no longer receive school meals they relied on throughout the school year. In New Jersey, only 19 percent of low-income children receive this critical summertime nutrition.

Help change that! Learn how you can bring meals to kids in your town this summer and how school districts have overcome obstacles to administer the programs effectively.

Register today!

The Food for Thought School Breakfast Campaign is a partnership of state agencies, child advocates, anti-hunger coalitions, statewide education organizations and national organizations.
