Learn how you can help feed children this summer by incorporating youth engagement. The goal of the webinar is to provide examples of how the youth can not only participate in the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), but also give back to their community by volunteering and advocating for the program. The webinar consists of a brief overview of the program, specifics on how youths can get involved, and some best practices!
Join anti-hunger advocates, state nutrition agencies, elected officials, and current summer meals sponsors to talk about the best ways to get more people and organizations involved with summer meals starting today. Feeding hungry children and teens this summer takes planning and coordination and we need your help now.
