Creating a community response to hunger

Please join us for the release of our child nutrition report in Atlantic City on Oct. 20 at 1 p.m. In addition to tracking our progress on school breakfast, this year’s report looks at other child nutrition programs and how communities can work together to feed children all year long, while bringing federal dollars into their schools and towns

The event will feature a panel discussion with local and community leaders talking about how communities can work together to bring more federal dollars into their schools and towns to feed hungry children all year long.

Space is limited! Register for this free event today.
