Afterschool Meals Matter - Community Partnerships

Wednesday, October 17, at 1:00 pm EST


Learn how you can connect with a myriad of community partners, from parent groups to corporate volunteer programs, who can offer you and your program their time, energy, and support. Community partners can assist you with meal preparation, programming, outreach to increase your participation, and ultimately to help build up community support and investment in your program. Community partners can help ensure the sustainability and growth of your program overtime to enable you to serve a greater number of meals and snacks to children after school.

Presenters to be announced.

We encourage you to sign-up early for the upcoming calls to ensure your reservation.

From our friends at the Food Research and Action Center
