Virginia Hunger Solutions Debuts School Breakfast Report with First Lady of Virginia, Dorothy McAuliffe
Monday, March 7th, 2016
Virginia Hunger Solutions (VHS), a project of the Virginia Poverty Law Center in conjunction with the Food Research & Action Center (FRAC), debuted their first Annual School Breakfast Report: Food for Thought. The report highlights the marked improvement in implementing Breakfast in the Classroom and the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP), across the state of Virginia, telling the story of how these programs can and are helping students across the Commonwealth. First Lady of Virginia Dorothy McAuliffe, a fierce advocate for ending childhood hunger, provided the forward for the report and highlighted it today, while kicking off National School Breakfast Week! A heartfelt thank you to the First Lady and her team, partners at FRAC and the Department of Education for helping VHS make this report a reality. Congratulations to all of the schools divisions who made the top 10 list and who made marked improvements in feeding the Commonwealth’s children over the last year. We should all feel proud to see how far we’ve come, and at the same time, see what work there is left to do to end childhood hunger in Virginia.
