“Hello” from Child Hunger Leaders Across NC

10 Years of the NC Child Hunger Leaders Conference

The School Nutrition Pivot “By The Numbers”

Dr. Lynn Harvey, Director of School Nutrition and District Operations at the NC Department of Public Instruction, gives a “by the numbers” look at how school nutrition programs have pivoted to adapt to the pandemic during the past year. See it here.

Pivot Videos

We invited attendees of this year’s NC Child Hunger Leaders Conference to submit “PIVOT TALKS,” or short videos about great work in child nutrition from the past year. These two dozen videos cover incredible being done in every corner of North Carolina. See them here.

Cooking Demos

We asked seven different organizations to make original cooking demos for this year’s conference. The chefs, organizations, and their recipes represent a wide variety of connections to fighting child hunger in North Carolina. See them here.


Great music and performances from NC artists and students have been a part of the NC Child Hunger Leaders Conference for many years, and 2021’s virtual event is no different. See them here.
