Championing for Breakfast

During my time as a No Kid Hungry Youth Ambassador, I had the opportunity to speak with school administrators about the importance of student breakfast participation, which helped me to become more involved in the community. While seemingly challenging at first, I believe I left lasting impressions on the schools I visited.

For example, at Democracy Prep, we successfully implemented "Breakfast in the Classroom" for kindergarteners and also filmed a public service announcement aimed to increase school breakfast participation throughout Southern Nevada.Additionally, we collaborated with Fay Herron Elementary School on a "Powered by Breakfast" event, as well as a "Community Night" event with other schools in the area.With the help of a week-long promotion by school staff, the Powered by Breakfast event was a great way to get more students eating school breakfast, while playing games and winning prizes.The Community Night event afforded me the opportunity to learn about different clubs, cultures and activities within the North Las Vegas community.

Being a No Kid Hungry Youth Ambassador also gave me the opportunity to participate in the Healthy Kids Festival. The interactive and hands-on festival combined physical activity with breakfast facts in an effort to teach kids about healthy living and healthy eating habits.

As a No Kid Hungry Youth Ambassador, I played a role in helping to promote Federal Child Nutrition programs such as school breakfast. I have always wanted to be an advocate for change in the community.Making schools more aware of Share Our Strength's mission, as well as Three Square's mission has given me the motivation and drive to be a champion for children and their access to healthy meals.
