The San Diego Hunger Coalition is pleased to announce that our School Meals Program will now be under the leadership of Robin McNulty, MPH, who is an expert in the field of school nutrition and a passionate advocate for children and equitable services to all.
For the past 10 years, Robin served as Director of Nutrition Services for the Lemon Grove School District. In her new role as School Meals Program Director, Robin will build upon the Hunger Coalition’s recent successes and deep commitment to ensuring children have access to healthy food year-round through school meals and other Federal Child Nutrition Programs.
With 1 in 4 children arriving to school hungry every day in San Diego County, and enough hungry kids to fill Qualcomm Stadium twice over, it is imperative that we fully utilize the options and resources available to give our children their best chance at success.
The Hunger Coalition’s School Meals Program offers hands-on technical assistance to school districts and community-based organizations to implement or increase participation in:
- Universal Free Meals through Provision 2 for schools where more than 80% qualify for Free & Reduced Price Meals.
- Breakfast after the Bell, which has been proven to reach many more kids and improve school performance.
- “Supper” Meals, offered during after-school programs through the Child and Adult Care Food Program.
- Summer and Intersession Meals, offered when school is not in session.
We look forward to the enrichment of our partnerships and encourage you to review Robin’s full bio on our website. Robin’s first day at the Hunger Coalition will be Tuesday, November 3, 2015, and you may contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org or 619-501-7917.
