Summer Meals Texting Hotline:
No Kid Hungry will continue a national texting hotline to provide information about summer meals sites to children and families in 2018.
Beginning in late May, children and families can text ‘FOOD’ or ‘COMIDA’ to 877-877 to receive information about meal service sites in their area. Last month CNW announced USDA FNS is kicking off a new text number for Summer 2018. Households can text “Summer Meals” to 97779 to find Summer meal sites once the site finder is ready for this summer. Households now have two options that can be used to locate summer meal service sites in addition to KSDE’s Locate a Site Near You at www.kn-eat.org, SFSP!
See you in August!
It is a new day in Kansas education.
With the input of more than 2,000 Kansans, the Kansas State Board of Education has set a new Vision for Kansas education where “Kansas leads the world in the success of each student.”
Kansans are demanding higher standards in academic skills, as well as employability and citizenship skills, and the need to move away from a “one-size-fits-all” system that relies exclusively on state assessments from No Child Left Behind. This new vision for education calls for a more student-focused system that provides support and resources for individual success and will require everyone to work together to make it a reality.
Kansans have never backed down from a challenge and certainly not where our children are concerned.
With your support, Kansans Can!
