In Tennessee, one in four children faces hunger every day. Crucial federal food programs administered by states and in collaboration with community partners are designed to effectively address the issue of hunger. DHS and the USDA Food and Nutrition Service have recently established a special partnership to ensure that no child should go hungry, reducing the rate of food insecurity across the state through food programs. Two key drivers are improving program integrity and maximizing impact.
DHS recognizes the importance of public/private partnerships and appreciates the efforts made by partners to feed children in need. To truly support and move families forward takes a collaborative approach that starts at the community level whereby everyone is doing their part to contribute.
Together and with your help, the DHS is on a journey toward transforming Tennessee’s food programs and alleviating child hunger. Learn more by clicking the presentation below.
