Good nutrition is vital for brain development and learning in infancy and early childhood. Research shows that food insecurity has a negative impact on reading and mathematics performances. Children in early education and preschool programs who are hungry or are stressed about when they will next eat struggle to stay awake, focus and learn. Partnering with a local food collective, early childhood programs can provide fresh, nutritious family style meals and be a partner in combating hunger.
