Child Nutrition, Summer Outreach
For the one in five New York City children living in homes that can't afford enough food, school meals are often the only opportunity for a child to receive a balanced meal. However, the opportunity to receive a nutritious meal should be available all year, not just when a child is in school.
NYCCAH is actively engaged in outreach to existing summer meal sites to make sure members of the community are aware of their existence and increase the utilization of these sites. We also work to bring more sites to neighborhoods found to have a high demand for summer feeding programs.
