No Kid Hungry, a national organization that works to end childhood hunger, worked with the USDA to develop the program and runs it each summer. The service is free, and open to anyone. A parent, grandparent or caregiver can simply text the word “FOOD” to 877-877 and the system prompts the user to provide their address or zip code, which is used to provide the location and service times of up to three nearby summer meals sites. The service is also available in Spanish, by texting the word “COMIDA” instead of “FOOD”.

Lenawee Great Start is proud to be offering this two day workshop from the Center for the Study of Social Policy’s Strengthening Families -A Protective Factors Framework. The Center for the Study of Social Policy developed the framework with the initial goal to create a national, systemic approach to prevention that would reach large numbers of children long before abuse and neglect would occur.
