BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The Children’s Hunger Project will present the second annual Child Hunger Summit, to be held on Tuesday, October 28.
The Summit will be from 9 to 11 a.m., with breakfast beginning at 8 a.m.
“The Summit will bring awareness to Brevard County’s faith-based leaders of the significant hunger issues local kids are facing and how their congregations can help generate the change necessary to help hungry kids here in our own backyard,” said Rob Rains, President of United Way.
The event, designed for religious leaders and leaders of faith-based organizations, will be held at the Holiday Inn-Viera and will be jointly sponsored by Project Hunger, United Way and The Children’s Hunger Project.
There is no charge for religious leaders and representatives of faith-based organizations.
Nutritionists, pediatricians, teachers, and other experts will frame the dangers of childhood malnutrition and hunger as it relates directly to early childhood learning. Dangers such as inhibited cognitive development, doing poorly in school and more likelihood of medical problems are just a few of the problems associated with childhood hunger.
“As part of the Summit, religious leaders will learn what their roles can be in helping to solve the local hunger issue with our kids,”siad Sarah Anthony, Assistant Director of The Children’s Hunger Project.
“The leaders will learn that the key to solving the problem is local, grassroots and within their grasp.”
