Description: School authorities, teachers, community organizations, and parents are interested in getting involved in summer feeding?  Our webinar  "Keeping Schools Involved in Summer Meals" presents examples of schools that have made the Summer Food Service Program successful.  The guest speakers on the webinar talk about what it takes for schools to run the summer feeding program in their communities, provide ideas on leveraging partnerships, and illustrate innovative ways to feed children during summer when school is out.  Schools are a great resource; they can work with school officials to keep the schools open for summer food, serve as a food vendor, use school grounds for sites, and provide transportation.
