PCCY Hosting Hunger Forum-Fighting Childhood Hunger When School is Out: The Nuts and Bolts of Summer Feeding Programs!

On Thursday, March 21 from 2:00-4:30PM, at the United Way located at 1709 Ben Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia, Public Citizens for Children and Youth (PCCY) with the support of many other organizations will host a hunger forum.

Many districts have had to scale back on summer school, which means more areas need additional summer feeding sites in order to serve children.

Representatives from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), PA Department of Education (PDE), Archdiocese of Philadelphia's Nutritional Development Services (NDS - which serves the five county SEPA region), and Philadelphia Parks and Recreation are partnering with PCCY to provide attendees the information they need to know about the program.

Please RSVP to Stacy Kirk at stacyk@pccy.org or (215) 563-5848 ext. 34 with your name and organization.
