1 in 6 children live in a food-insecure household. Not only is this a physical health concern, but it can be crucial to the development of healthy mindsets. One of the greatest obstacles in eating healthy food can be a lack of accessibility.
United Way fights for each child in our community to have the resources and opportunities to achieve optimal physical and mental health. Hometown Huddle 2021 is tackling hunger because school breaks should not mean hungry children in our community. Join groups of volunteers during Hometown Huddle as they provide opportunities to promote healthy eating and physical activity of students.
