  1. A very nice presentation and article on childhood hunger.

    It’s sad that this is an issue in this day and age.


  2. Jennifer, your presentation so aptly demonstrates the power of public health programming to make a positive difference in society, and at the same time raise public awareness regarding the growing need for social change as it pertains to childhood hunger in America. Thank you!


  3. Thoughtful presentation. I was involved with a backpack program in Columbia, Mo. when we lived there, and was sadly shocked by the number of students needing such basic help. Glad to see there are also programs here, and Resurrection is close to my home, so I will check it out!

  4. Informative and consice presentation that outlines the problem addressed and the specific ways in which your project can provide a solution. I have seen how this type of program can have a positive impact on those children in need. What a great project to take on! I look forward to knowing the outcome once this is implemented.
