Share Our Strength has created a program to involve college-aged Youth Ambassadors in the fight against childhood hunger by working with one of our state No Kid Hungry partners.
Cooking Matters CT is excited to be involved for the first time in this wonderful endeavor, joining No Kid Hungry and End Hunger CT! to host a Youth Ambassador here in Connecticut. Cooking Matters CT is excited to be working in collaboration with these organizations once again, and thrilled to be providing advocacy, support, and information on how children and families can gain access to meals throughout the year.
The Youth Ambassadors will work on collaborative projects along with No Kid Hungry, End Hunger CT! and Cooking Matters CT that will increase the number of children receiving access to healthy meals in their community. Activities will include visiting and evaluating school breakfast sites, organizing or leading Cooking Matters CT courses or Cooking Matters at the Store tours, attending partner meetings, and organizing online and social media.
