The Shopping Matters tour participants appreciated the recipes, explanation of how to choose the healthier options in canned foods, whole grains and lean proteins. As a mini-grantee, I felt the Shopping Matters materials were very helpful and I look forward to using them again in the future!

Reaching out to the community to increase awareness of hunger in our community has made a big impact, especially increasing individual support and helping our food banks. Thank you so much for the “Hunger in Our Community” mini-grant opportunity! It was wonderful.

Alexandra Cruz Lago, Dietetic Intern (Puerto Rico)

Caption (HTML)
Sharing about hunger in the community in Puerto Rico was very important due to our high rate of food insecurity, food deserts and poverty among the population of the island. Being a Dietetic Intern has made me aware of the responsibility of our profession in my community and how much Puerto Rico needs nutritional intervention in different areas.

The Kids Eat Right “Hunger in Our Community, Rage against Rumbles” presentation has made students more aware of local food insecurity. The teens have started to think about ways they can stamp out hunger. Thank you for the “Hunger in Our Community” mini-grant opportunity.

Stephanie Serpas, Student (California)

The best part of teaching is when my class teaches me something based on what they learned from me in the first place; that is when true learning begins. As a Kids Eat Right “Hunger in Our Community” mini-grantee, I enjoyed the toolkit, especially the practical ideas and suggestions that were offered. My class participants really enjoyed it! I have been leading Nutrition Workshop for a year now and all I can say is that the field of dietetics is exactly where I need to be!

JoAnna Siciliano, RD, LDN (Illinois)

Caption (HTML)
By using the "Family Meals. Anytime. Anyplace." toolkit, I educated the teenage girls at Our Lady of Tepeyac High School on the importance of family mealtime. The girls in my classes agreed that by eating meals with their family, they felt more connected and supported by their parents. For example, some girls noted that their moms made them laugh, or that their dads told them childhood stories.

Monica Stewart, RD, LD (Arkansas)

Caption (HTML)
Food insecurity looks different in every state. In Northwest Arkansas, it looks like it affects 1 in 4 people. I applied for the “Hunger in Our Community” mini-grant to coincide with a new student led food pantry at a local high school. I was able to reach students, teachers, and administrators and together we’ve raised awareness for something very real in our community. It was a great experience and I look forward to doing more with Kids Eat Right in the future. Thank you!

The “Hunger in Our Community” presentation brought awareness to a topic that is rarely discussed. Great conversations and community outreach programs were discovered in a short amount of time when we all came together.
