This month the Food Research and Action Center is combining the Summer and Afterschool Meals Matter conference call series into one informative call about Let’s Move! Cities, Towns and Counties (LMCTC), a part of First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! initiative, and how cities, towns and counties participating in this initiative are making efforts to serve children healthy meals year-round through the Summer and Afterschool Meal Program. LMCTC sets out to address the nation’s childhood obesity epidemic through five measurable and achievable goals. Goal III: Smart Servings for Students encourages cities to offer the Summer and Afterschool Meal Programs in their communities. Join FRAC and the National League of Cities (NLC) to learn about LMCTC and how elected officials are addressing child hunger and nutrition issues through the Summer and Afterschool Meal Program.
