Dairy Programs Highlighted at Child Hunger Conference
On February 22 staffer Laura Buxenbaum spoke about school dairy programs at the 2017 North Carolina Child Hunger Leaders Conference in Chapel Hill. Over 250 state and community leaders gathered to work toward reducing childhood hunger in the state, and Buxenbaum shared how North Carolina dairy farmers help provide access to dairy in schools. The winners of the North Carolina Breakfast Challenge, sponsored by the ADA of North Carolina and North Carolina No Kid Hungry, were also announced. The winning schools increased their breakfast participation by an average of 50 percent. Clifford Loflin, retiring North Carolina ADA president from Sophia, presented the awards to the winning schools.
