Expanding access to Afterschool Meals is crucial: a quarter of low-income parents worry that their children don't have enough to eat between lunch at school and breakfast the following day, yet there are less than five afterschool meals served for every 100 free or reduced-price lunches. Schools are excellent partners in increasing participation, and this webinar will focus on giving schools the tools needed to implement the Afterschool Meals Program effectively. Drawing on best practices gleaned from pilot tests and interviews as well as resources like the Three Meals a Day guide co-produced with the School Nutrition Foundation, this webinar will show how Afterschool Meals can be a win-win-win for schools.
