Food insecurity, nutrient deficiency and improperly balanced diets are widespread issues that can cause gaps in education, social development and overall wellness – the fundamental factors of student success. We can close this gap by ensuring all students have access to the nutrition they need, empowering them to take charge of their own wellness.
Students are the leaders of tomorrow, and they need Nutrition NOW. Watch the play back of our recent webinar event: Tips Tricks and Best Practices Webinar.
