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.

This webinar will highlight a 2014-2017 CDFA specialty crop block grant’s development of a produce RFP that prioritizes regional and California grown fruit and vegetables as well as complementary promotion and engagement efforts that have increased student healthy eating behavior. Through presentations from K-12 cooperative purchasing district leads and partners from the Center for Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems (CASFS) and Community Alliance with Family Farmers (CAFF) participants will gain new resources to aid their district and regional sourcing and promotion efforts. In addition, this session will also create a facilitated discussion space to explore collective buying challenges and barriers in order to inform future K-12 efforts.
