Did you know that children struggling with hunger face higher risks of poor health & are more likely to struggle academically. CHA feeds children in collaboration with childcare centers, in-home family childcare providers, afterschool programs and at summer meal sites. CHA also works with schools to increase breakfast participation and provide weekend meals because we all know hunger doesn’t take a break when kids aren’t in school. Having consistent access to food gives them the best opportunity to become a productive adult & help break the cycle of poverty.
