About This Event

Food insecurity has long-term effects on the mental, physical, social and economic health of children and families. When children don’t get enough food, or don’t have a well-rounded diet, they have more trouble performing in school and maintaining overall health than their peers.  

Join us for this presentation and discussion about how nutrition impacts a student’s learning ability, social factors that impact food insecurity and diet quality, and what educators, parents and community members can do to help solve the problem. 

You will: 

  • learn how nutrition affects learning ability and behavior; 
  • gain a basic understanding of the social determinants of health; and 
  • learn ways you can help hungry students excel in school.
