September 13 – Feeding the Future: 3 Meals a Day, 365 Days a Year

Enough nutritious food is critical to children’s physical, mental, and behavioral development, but one in five Oklahoma children experience food insecurity. Join this panel discussion to understand how hunger negatively impacts Oklahoma’s children, the action being taken to address it, and how your community can take part.

Shea Boschee, Building Partnerships to Build Healthier Community
Every day, YMCAs respond to the specific needs of the communities they serve. The sudden school closures and economic uncertainty brought on by COVID-19 dramatically increased the need for child care and food access across the nation. Hear about how our small, rural YMCA in north central Oklahoma changed the way we serve our community when our doors closed.

Learning Objectives:

  • The importance of having the courage to jump in before you are ready
  • The importance of partnerships
  • How to play nice with others

Share Our Strength, No Kid Hungry
The Share Our Strength, No Kid Hungry team will be sharing promising practices and examples from communities across the country to holistically bring together nutrition programs to support food access for children and families.
