Supporting School Age Food Insecurity

This tool kit by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, North Carolina Child Care Resource and Referral Council, and Southwestern Child Development Commission defines food insecurity and how school-age programs can support children and families that may be experiencing food insecurity. While this resource is designed for North Carolina, there is much that is relevant to school-age programs in any state. It includes information on the effects of food insecurity, how to recognize signs of hunger, and how to combat hunger in an afterschool program.  This resource supports equity.
