In the Hunger in Our Community toolkit presentation for teens, the teens and I liked the interactive section where we brainstormed ideas about combating hunger in our community. These ideas will be integrated into the local food bank and community garden. I also liked that the teen presentation showed me where to find local hunger data at www.feedingamerica.org/mapthegap. I was unfamiliar with the Feeding America data before these presentations.

As a Healthy Eating. From the Ground Up. mini-grantee, I presented to 40 teens and 50 parents. Both groups enjoyed the explanation about the nutritional benefits behind the colors in plants. I especially liked the organization of the PowerPoint and examples embedded in the slides.

I presented three "Hunger in Our Community" presentations at Tuscola High School in Illinois to ~70 students in their Foods and Consumer Science classes. The students were engaged in finding a solution to fight hunger in their communities after learning about the prevalence in their county. It was an eye opening experience for the students that will hopefully make them more sensitive the others' living situations. I feel very fortunate that the Kids Eat Right mini-grant allowed me to educate teens on this very important topic.

The Kids Eat Right Hunger toolkit provided me with everything I needed to spread the word about hunger in our community.  The information was timely and interesting for the groups I spoke with and the feedback was overwhelmingly positive. My greatest hope is that with the help of these presentations, I was able to energize some of my audience into action against hunger in my community.

I really enjoyed the Family Meals presentation. The thing I most liked about it was everything needed for the presentation was already included in the kit. There were statistics/facts but not too many to bore the teens. The teen participants especially enjoyed the age-appropriate pictures that kept them engaged during the presentation

I had a great experience as a Family Meals mini-grantee, from a Dietetic Intern’s perspective, because it gave me the opportunity to impact families inspiring them to make responsible food choices, and to be creative and enthusiastic during family meals. I loved the Family Meals toolkit. I used it as a guide and translated its content to Spanish. The participants enjoyed the presentation very much and were eager to learn more about the topic. I definitely recommend that Academy members use the toolkit and personalize it according to the population's needs.

During my rotation at Hays School District, I was able to use the Family Meals toolkit at two events within the district. The toolkit was easy to use and provided valuable information to families within the community. We were able to incorporate this presentation into an already developed Family Fit Night event where we taught parents and students about the benefits of family meals as well as healthy snacking in between meals. Thank you Kids Eat Right for this great opportunity!

I was a mini-grantee for the Hunger in My Community toolkit and I was fortunate enough to have a reporter attend one of my presentations, and she featured the event and the issue of hunger and food insecurity in a local newspaper.

Through the Kids Eat Right Hunger in Our Community Mini-Grant, I was able to present to four high school classes, and it was a lot of fun. The teens were really interested. A lot were surprised some people might only have $0.80 for food for the day, and didn't think they could survive on that. Many were interested in volunteering as they have community service hours to do and thought helping hungry people would be a good way to complete them.

Sarah Waybright, MS, RD, LD (District of Columbia)

Caption (HTML)
As nutrition gets more focus in schools, thanks to efforts by Michelle Obama, Kids Eat Right and the revamping of the National School Lunch Program, children are finally being exposed to the information and food they need to grow into healthy adults. But when they go home they're still going to eat whatever parents put on the table, and that's what makes the RD Parent Empowerment Program so important and unique. It's an opportunity to attack the problem from the bottom up AND the top down. Many parents of today's school-aged children are from a generation that was raised when cooking at home declined, and skills to prepare healthy food were lost. The RD Parent Empowerment Program helps bring that back! It also promotes RD's to a demographic that aren't as familiar with us and what we do.
