Take a look at what we've done, and what we have planned.
Looking Back on Summer Meals-to-You
Families across the United States rely on the consistency of school meals to help fill the gaps of their children’s nutrition needs. The Summer Food Service Program offers an extension of these programs into the months when school is out of session. However, those in rural communities face barriers such as transportation and distance in accessing these traditional summer programs. Organizations working to create more just and equitable food systems, like the Baylor Collaborative on Hunger and Poverty, are exploring innovative and sustainable programs to solve these specifically rural challenges.
In 2019 we partnered with USDA and McLane Global to begin a three-year demonstration project in specific school districts in West and East Texas to research whether a meal delivery system is feasible and sustainable. The concept is simple: Package weekly meal items that closely follow USDA Child Nutrition guidelines and deliver them directly to the homes of children in these rural communities. Now in Year 3, we have expanded into other districts in New Mexico and Alaska and are excited about providing a valuable service to rural families, and learning more about how the program can be improved!
