What does it take to end child hunger in Yavapai County? Cornucopia Community Advocates, under the direction of President Harvey Grady, have compiled an in-depth report on child hunger and food resources available through Yavapai County schools, child care providers and community.
With a small grant from the Arizona Community Foundation, Cornucopia Community Advocates conducted the 2011-12 Yavapai Child Hunger Survey of child care providers and public schools in the county. The survey’s purpose was to determine current estimates of the prevalence of children who are going hungry, who are malnourished, overweight/obese and/or diabetic. What began as a simple count of hungry children grew into a dynamic action plan to reduce and eliminate child hunger in our county.
Cornucopia Community Advocates shares their findings in an comprehensive and informative report, “Ending Childhood Hunger in Yavapai County”, available for download.
