No Tennessee Child Should Go Hungry
DHS AND USDA TEAM UP TO ADDRESS CHILD HUNGER
NASHVILLE— The Tennessee Department of Human Services (DHS) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture Food and Nutrition Service (USDA-FNS) have joined forces to find partners to join us in our quest to ensure that no Tennessee child goes hungry this summer.
Did you know that one in four children face hunger in Tennessee? During each school day, approximately 649,000 children in Tennessee participate in the free or reduced-price school lunch program. Last summer, Tennessee’s Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) served approximately 42,000 children per day - clearly indicating the need to reach more children is great. We need your help to close this gap for our children.
