YMCA promotes hunger awareness

In the U.S., millions of youth and teens (1 out of every 6) are struggling with “food insecurity.” This is when a child doesn't have regular access to fresh food or proper nutrition so that their development is severely impacted. Studies show that kids can't learn, grow, or reach their full potential on an empty stomach.

On Saturday, April 21st, the Y’s Healthy Kids Day and art contest will bring together thousands of kids for a fun celebration that will also focus attention on a serious issue. YMCAs across the country will be celebrating Healthy Kids’ Day with programs ranging from fun events to art contests to open houses.

We spoke with Stacey McDaniel, Project Manager-Anti-Hunger Initiatives Specialist at YMCA of the USA, for more information on this initiative.
