Recognizing that food is a common thread linking the sustainable development goals (SDGs), given the interconnected economic, social, and environmental dimensions of food systems, the dialogue aims to identify the challenges of feeding 14 million food insecure children of America. Feeding America has projected that by the end of this year, 2021, more children would have experienced food insecurity when compared to recent history. As the gaps in access to food are highlighted as a consequence of the COVID19 pandemic, it is identified that federal child nutrition programs are critical in meeting the needs of the most vulnerable in our communities, the children. It is also recognized that policy plays a significant role in addressing challenges for food insecure households with children.

What is the importance of community awareness and coalition building?

The virtual consultative forum aims to foster dialogue in St. Louis, Missouri through an inclusive stakeholder approach to examine the Child Nutrition Reauthorization Act as a policy tool and to highlight avenues of participation for local communities in identifying their needs, their challenges, and their interventions to secure sustainable policies.
