Children at Risk March Newsletter
Children at Risk

March, 2016

Nutritious, affordable food is simply out of reach for too many Texas families. To continue our work to improve fresh food access, we proudly announce our third year of partnership with the American Heart Association. In Dallas, C@R is collaborating with the Health and Wellness Alliance and the Food Trust for the adoption of a Healthy Corner Store Program by the City.

With nearly 1 in 5 Texas households facing food insecurity, we also need strong school meal programs. The recent release of our School Food Rankings expands our outreach abilities and, thanks to the support of Dean Foods and Memorial Hermann Health System, we will continue this crucial fight for Texas' kids to eat well and perform well in school.
Very truly yours,
Dr. Bob Sanborn
President & CEO

Texas Tour Outreach around Early Education  
From February 16-24, we visited seven cities to engage local officials and organizations, met with parents to discuss perception of quality child care, and urged local school districts to apply for Pre-k quality funds. We received coverage from 20 separate outlets across the state, and we have included selected excerpts in our latest blog post. You can also read more about the Texas Tour in our original blog post, and stay tuned for the full early education report including policy recommendations in September 2016. Special thanks to the W.K. Kellogg Foundation for their support of these projects.
