While hunger affects people of all ages, it is particularly devastating for children. Even short-term episodes of hunger can cause lasting damage to child development, putting children at risk for a range of cognitive, behavioral, emotional, and physical problems. Strengthening child nutrition programs provides an immediate and direct way to reduce child hunger and improve health and educational outcomes. The benefits will be seen not only in individual classrooms, but also across the entire School District. An increase in attendance, test scores and academic achievement improves educational results for the entire district.
