Millions of working families in America are struggling to pay for food, shelter and healthcare. By connecting families with health insurance, federal nutrition programs and other benefits, city leaders can help alleviate poverty and improve the local economy.
Hunger and food insecurity can have devastating long-term effects on children. We have partnered with the Food Research and Action Center to reduce child hunger by expanding participation in afterschool and summer meals programs through the Cities Combating Hunger through Afterschool and Summer Meal Programs (CHAMPS) initiative.
With support from The Atlantic Philanthropies, we are helping local leaders connect families to health insurance through the Cities Expanding Health Access for Children and Families (CEHACF) initiative.
