During National Nutrition Month, Efforts to Combat Childhood Hunger
In a speech at the 2015 National Anti-Hunger Policy Conference, USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack announced an initiative to develop innovative projects to help end childhood hunger, especially in rural areas. These projects will be tested in Kentucky, Nevada, and Virginia, as well as the Chickasaw and Navajo tribal nations. USDA also published a blog post describing the importance of school breakfast programs for student health and success, challenges to student access to meals, and innovative approaches to making sure more children are fed.
