United Way is committed to ending childhood hunger by helping low income children access nutritious food where they live, learn, and play. Schools play a critical role in getting children the nutrition they need to learn and thrive. In school year 15/16 we will begin establishing Healthy & Hunger Free Nutrition Hubs at King County schools. Hunger Free Schools will leverage partnerships with schools, AmeriCorps members, and community based organizations, to make sure no kid is hungry. We will increase participation in federal nutrition programs, connect families with income supports, expand access to emergency services, and provide nutrition education to low income kids and families. Building on the model of our successful One Million Meals Campaign, we will launch the program at 10 schools and plan to replicate the model in the most high-needs King County schools.
