Please join the Alliance to End Hunger, FAO North America, and a panel of experts for an important and timely online conversation on how eliminating childhood hunger not only builds the nation, but also helps propel the country as a model for the world.
The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has upended the world as we know it. With school closure from coast to coast, millions of children are at risk of face hunger if urgent actions are not taken. We know very well that inadequate child nutrition produces consequences far beyond childhood hunger. Education, health, economic prosperity, and community development all suffer when children are not fed.
Fortunately, there are programs, organizations, and initiatives mobilizing as we speak to ensure that children in the United States are fed nutritiously year-round. The session will provide a dialogue around best practices that can be promoted throughout the United States and around the world.
