One easy way to combat child/adolescent food insecurity is making sure students have access year round to the federally funded, USDA approved meals- more specifically to the breakfast and summer meals program. In this breakout session, our distinct panelist will address the importance of nutrition and education; why breakfast is the most important meal of the day and what districts are doing to increase access to it such as Breakfast After the Bell. And since hunger doesn’t a take a break during the summer, the conversation will continue on the summer meals program- how organizations can become sites and sponsors and what districts are doing to promote and increase awareness of this program.
