No Kid Hungry Louisiana
For the past six years, No Kid Hungry New Orleans helped to provide meals to NOLA kids where they live, work and play. As of the Fall 2017, No Kid Hungry New Orleans became No Kid Hungry Louisiana! We have expanded our efforts statewide and we are excited to focus on five regions throughout the state as we join Governor John Bel Edwards in our joint goal of eliminating childhood hunger in the state of Louisiana.
Louisiana School Breakfast Challenge a huge success
During the month of March we will be celebrating School Breakfast Week and announcing the winning schools of Louisiana's School Breakfast Challenge! On March 7, 2018, North Corbin Jr High in Walker, LA will host our announcement event where we will welcome our state's First Lady, Donna Edwards. Mrs. Edwards will be on hand to represent the Governor and speak on behalf of the state of Louisiana. The Louisiana Dairy Alliance will present the Fuel Up To Play 60 prize winners, and we will announce the five Regional winners as well as the statewide winner of the $1000 grand prize.
On March 9th, French Settlement High School in Livingston Parish will host our Saints Pep Rally with Saints running back Trey Edmunds attending. We will reveal our Louisiana School Breakfast Challenge Hall of Fame poster, which 49 school in the state, all having reached at least 70% school breakfast participation will receive.
The Louisiana School Breakfast Challenge as well as this year's awards and awards events were made possible as the result of NKH Louisiana's partnerships with Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards and the Governor's Office, The Governor's Children Cabinet, The USDA, The Louisiana Department of Child Nutrition and The Dairy Alliance. We applaud the school leaders at over 300 schools across the state who also partnered with us and are helping to move us closer to our goal of ending childhood hunger by significantly increasing school breakfast participation in Louisiana.
