It has been a pleasure working with school districts in Northeast Iowa. The "Empowered Parents for School Wellness" workshops have provided a tremendous opportunity for parents to join with food service directors and wellness team members to discuss the changes in the school lunch and breakfast programs. In all our sessions, parents offered suggestions for future changes and everyone enjoyed sampling new menu items. Parents are genuinely concerned about their children's nutrition and health and the workshops are an excellent opportunity for gathering their input and strengthening the partnership between the school and the parents in offering tasty, delicious foods that kids enjoy eating.

On behalf of New York Presbyterian Hospital, I would like to thank the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation for its Champions for Healthy Kids grant in support of the expansion of our Healthy City Kids program to East Harlem.

The Champions for Healthy Kids grant is such a wonderful gift for LaGrange School District 105 in Illinois! By incorporating the technology students use every day, we are going to better connect the concepts of nutrition and fitness. Additionally, we are focusing on opportunities for this education to trickle into the students' home life in an effort to build a more health conscious community. Everyone is very excited!

We are thrilled to receive such a generous "Champions for Healthy Kids" grant! This project is truly a multi-organization community project coming at the perfect time. There has been ground work done in the past few years to heighten gardens/greenhouses throughout the community and the schools. Thank you so much for supporting the efforts of many committed South Lake Tahoe residents.

I presented "Hunger in Our Community. What We Can Do." at Big Brothers Big Sisters in Charlottesville, VA. The presentation motivated participants to volunteer at a local food bank and organize a food drive with healthier food donations. Participants are planning to use the Academy's and Kids Eat Right's websites whenever they seek nutrition related information.

The Nutrition Center
Champions for Healthy Kids Grant Recipient

The Champions for Healthy Kids grant allows us to focus on two elementary schools in the county's most underserved communities and to provide comprehensive programming -- physical activity, nutrition messaging, cross curricular concepts. The most exciting part is the huge potential for impact because we can reach both the students and the parents and really have this becomes part of the overall culture for these kids. We want to reach all aspects of their lives so that real food becomes the new norm.

The Kids Eat Right Hunger in the Community toolkit was fantastic. I used the toolkit with two groups of adults in the community and it brought a lot of great discussions. We were able to communicate about what is going on in the community currently, what we can be doing differently, who else we need to get involved and how we can put real solutions to work locally.

We conducted two presentations for the Hunger in Our Community Mini Grant. We really enjoyed this presentation and our audiences were able to take away a great message from it. Thank you for this opportunity and for the prepared materials.

The Hunger and Overweight presentation in the Hunger in Our Community toolkit was very insightful. My audiences contained teachers, parents, grandparents, and other interested community members. It motivated many of them to want to inform others what they can do to help with hunger within their community. We started with collecting non-perishable foods at the beginning of the presentation to donate to a local food bank. As the presenter, I found the presentations so informative and well put together. I felt that presentations on hunger and the relationship to obesity were well needed because it is an area that people do not often put together. My audiences left feeling that they really learned something, and wanted to get involved.
