Webinar: Actions to Address Hunger for Immigrant Kids

This summer, low-income students from immigrant families face increased risk of going hungry. With schools letting out for the summer, many children will lose access to the nutritious meals that schools provide. In locations where summer meal programs are available, there is concern that immigrant families may be less likely to show up due to heightened immigration enforcement concerns.

Webinar – Donating School Garden Produce to Those in Need

As harvest season approaches, there are many ways to utilize your school garden produce. We believe donating to food pantries, soup kitchens, and meals-on-wheels programs is a great option that connects students to their community and educates around issues of hunger.

Come hear guest presenters:

We will be discussing a range of topics including:

  • How to identify community groups to accept produce donations
  • Food safety in harvesting and donating produce
  • The logistics of a donation
