New Report by U.S. Conference of Mayors and Sodexo Shares Effective Strategies to Alleviate Childhood Hunger

Boston, New Haven, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C. profiled for overall city-wide anti-hunger efforts
Summary: 

The United States Conference of Mayors (USCM) and Sodexo, Inc., the world leader in Quality of Daily Life Solutions, have partnered over the past several years to shed light on the severity of the problems of hunger and homelessness in U.S. cities, as well as the impact and value of investments in anti-hunger programs. Today, the partners released a case study on childhood hunger, “Strategies to Combat Childhood Hunger in Four U.S. Cities.” This year, the effort took an in-depth look at initiatives in four cities: Boston, Mass., New Haven, Conn., San Francisco, Calif., and Washington, D.C. that have the potential to serve as models for other U.S. cities confronting childhood hunger, which has escalated due to the downturn in the economy.
