How Energy Express Improves Summer Nutrition
AmeriCorps members serving as mentors and children share breakfast and lunch served family-style. These nutritious meals become important learning experiences as children learn to make choices, assume responsibility, cooperate, and participate in group discussions.
Local school systems and non-profit agencies serve as Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) sponsors with contracts through the West Virginia Department of Education’s Office of Child Nutrition. Funding for the SFSP
comes from the United States Department of Agriculture.
