The directors of Childhood Food Solutions have decades of experience fighting hunger, but now we are fighting childhood food insecurity by assessing problems, measuring gaps and planning to fill them completely. To achieve food security, children must always know where food is available whenever their family might have none.
Teachers and educators have for years seen that hungry children comprehend less, have more health problems, are more easily agitated in class and are more likely to get into trouble. Through nutrition and food education, Alabama Childhood Food Solutions can help to change a generation of children into productive citizens.
ACFS is breaking the cycle of government dependency in portions of five counties in Central Alabama through providing a sustainable community source of nutritional food.
