No Child Left Hungry
Courtesy of East Side Entrees, “No Child Left Hungry” examines underutilized Federal nutrition programs such as the School Breakfast Program, the After School Snack and Supper Program and the Summer Food Service Program. This video demonstrates how anti-hunger advocates in both rural and urban communities have succeeded in reducing the plight of hunger and food-insecurity. One of the activists profiled in the video, Jim Couts, President of the Appalachian Nutrition Network, has incorporated the best of federal, state, and local government resources, in tandem with private businesses and a network of non-profits, to increase summer and after school meals for children in rural Southeast Ohio by 418 percent. At the same time, the video also shows viewers how Joel Berg, Executive Director of the New York City Coalition Against Hunger, is coordinating a network of more than 1200 soup kitchens and food pantries that serve over one million New Yorkers, including hundreds of thousands of children.
