Sacramento Summer Meals Collaborative | 2nd Quarter Gathering

Event at La Familia Counseling Center



Time Price
Fri, 9am - 12pm
Free

Dear Sacramento Summer Meal Collaborative Partners,

The next SacramentoSummer Meals Collaborative Gathering will be held on Friday, April 27, 2018, from 9am-12pm. The Summer Meals Collaborative Gatherings occur on a quarterly basis, this being the second quarter of 2018 – come join us and plug into the many resources will have available for summer meal sites and the community at large!

During the summer, kids are at a heightened risk of experiencing hunger. More than half of families whose kids eat a subsidized school meal during the school year have a harder time making ends meet during the summer than the school year. Join the Sacramento Summer Meals Collaborative and community leaders to support our efforts to best utilize the Summer Food Service Program to reach more Sacramento kids in need this summer.

What is the gathering about?

We are asking attendees to share their knowledge about the community, ideas for feeding kids, and a willingness to contribute resources to the effort. The objectives of this gathering are to solidify a shared vision for summer success, and engage event attendees with the various resources created and made available by our 2018 working groups.

Who should attend?

We encourage anyone interested in addressing childhood hunger during the summer to join our collaborative and attend the quarterly gatherings. We especially hope to hear from:

• Summer Food Service Program sponsors
• Summer meal program site staff or volunteers
• Local leaders from neighborhoods and city or county government
• Representatives from schools including principals, teachers, nutrition staff
• Leaders from community organizations that work with kids during the summer
• Parents or community members who want to help kids this summer
