The goal of the Cumberland County Food Summit is to bring together school and local leaders, community organizations and others to identify solutions to ensure that all Cumberland County children have access to healthy, nutritious meals all year long.
Nearly 11,000 Cumberland County children live in families earning below the federal poverty line and thousands more live in low-income families who also struggle to make ends meet. Several federal programs exist to feed these at-risk children – often at little or no cost to schools and communities.
Attend the summit to learn how you can work with others in your community to create strong nutritional safety nets so kids get the nutrition they need to learn, grow and be healthy.
This event is sponsored by the Bridgeton Area Police Athletic League, the Community Food Bank of New Jersey, the Gateway Community Action Partnership and the New Jersey Department of Agriculture.
