Manage episode 347882761 series 3393192
Five million children in the U.S live in food-insecure households, uncertain if they have enough money for meals. This not only affects their nutrition, but many believe it could impact their performance in school too. How has the pandemic affected students who rely on free school meals? How does lack of access to nutritious foods impact student learning and outcomes? What can we do to break stigmas around food insecurity and ensure that EVERY student has the nutrition they need to succeed?
In this episode, Kevin discusses nutrition in and outside of schools with the founder and CEO of FoodCorps, Curt Ellis.
