Week of the Young Child a Success

  Filed under: Uncategorized

We had a great Week of the Young Child! The theme, Eat a Rainbow, focused on improving nutrition as a way to improve learning for young children. We’d like to thank our sponsors and the many community members who participated. We launched the week with members of the faith community incorporating a week of the young child message into their services and a parade with more than 200 children marching around Discovery Park. Thanks to your donations, we contributed food to a local Backpack Buddies program, held a healthy cooking demonstration from On the Square owners Inez and Stephen Ribustello and ended the week with a wonderful presentation from Audrey Rowe, Administrator for the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) at the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) in Washington D.C.
