Welcome to The Activist!
About a month ago, during one of our weekly team meetings, we were sitting around discussing the most frequently asked questions from students across the country – Why does a starving child’s stomach stick out as if he were full? What do parents do while their children are enrolled in a nutrition program? – and we wondered how we could answer the questions for everyone.
So starting today, we will be using this space to answer those questions—and others—and to generally connect students and teachers with Action Against Hunger. We want this blog to be interactive, so we encourage you to add your questions, ideas, and comments—and of course, tell your friends! If there is something you would like us to talk about, contact us.
We will be back soon with our first informational post!
