The Hunger in Our Community toolkit was easy to use and effective for raising awareness about the issues of hunger, food insecurity, and obesity for teens. Several of the students commented that they were surprised to learn that hunger and obesity can coexist and they were interested in thinking about what they could do to raise awareness for these issues. I will definitely be applying for future grants and using the other toolkits to present to students in the school system that I work in.

The toolkit was extremely helpful and made presenting a breeze. I appreciated the webinars that went along with Hunger in Our Community because the information was very valuable in answering questions during the presentation. The PowerPoints were also set up very well.

I am grateful for the Kids Eat Right campaign. With the resources and available grants I have been able to get the Kids Eat Right message out in our community! At my hospital we hosted a kids summer wellness camp where I presented "Healthy Eating, From the Ground Up" and was financially able to supply seeds, pots, and soil to let the kids actually plant food thanks to the grant! Some of them were so amazed that our food comes from the ground (well some of it!). In addition, you all inspired me to reach further. Last year I coordinated a large community health fair that brought in over 200 participants-majority of them kids! The Superintendent allowed schools to take a field trip to the fair for the day. I was able to use a lot of the presentations and materials throughout the fair. The kids got to learn about food and nutrition first hand and we threw in some Zumba! I plan to strike big at our annual meeting this year and recruit as many Kids Eat Right campaign members as I can. You all are doing great things with this campaign and I hope you continue to get the support you need.

Thanks so much for providing the opportunity to use the Hunger in Our Community toolkit. I presented to in-home day care providers, mainly from the South Bronx, who work in a community that certainly feels the effects of both hunger and obesity. This presentation struck a chord with the providers who more than likely care for at least some children from food insecure families. We discussed how their day cares, at least for some children, may provide the best source of nutrition available all day. The Hunger in Our Community PowerPoint was paired with a nutrition training offered by the Women’s Housing and Economic Development Corporation, and providers certainly walked away inspired to provide high quality nutrition to the children they care for. Thanks again!

Both presentations on Hunger in Our community-What We Can Do, were very appreciated by youth and their parents. Participants actively participated in the presentations and they were amazed to learn the facts on the prevalence of hunger in their community and its effect on health. They came up with many ideas to fight hunger and decided to start a food pantry project in their mosque and a vegetable garden outside their school. The Kids Eat Right Toolkit was very easy to use and I look forward to use it again in future. Thank you for the Mini-Grant!

I presented the Rage against Rumbles Hunger in Our Community presentation to students in Home Economics and Consumer Science classes. The students were surprised to learn that often times those who are hungry and malnourished are also overweight or obese. We discussed ways they might be able to fight hunger in our community. The toolkit was easy to use and I enjoyed my time in the classroom very much. I would definitely like to make this a quarterly or semi- annual activity!
