Volunteers Wanted: Activities for Children at Free Summer Meal Mobile Sites

The Summer meals program is looking for volunteers to help with activities at the New Haven Public School Food Services free summer meal mobile sites. At these sites from Jun 29 until Aug 18 either free meals, lunch or supper, is provided to any child aged eighteen or younger. Over 40% of New Haven's children live in poverty and while school is out these free meals are a way for children to get healthy food.We need volunteers to run fun activities to attract the children to the site(s) so they can get food when the food truck or bus arrives. While the food trucks tend to stay in an area for about 30 mins, programming can be longer.  Activities can include music, art, games, reading, etc.

 

If you are interested in lending your talents, please contact Cathy Davies (cathy.davies@foodcorps.org) or call 858 231 0274.

A Market That Kindles Culture and Commerce

In St. Paul, MN, a summer celebration of arts and entrepreneurship, modeled on night markets in Asia, has galvanized commerce and culture along University Avenue. LISC's longtime partner, the Asian Economic Development Association, is leading the charge to revitalize the district, where Southeast Asian residents and businesspeople have incorporated a "a Minnesota twist."

How Arts and Culture Can Catalyze Rural Development

In an interview for Rural Voices, a publication of the Housing Assistance Council, Bob Reeder, Rural LISC's director for national programs, discusses the importance of inclusion, diversity and economic equity when bringing arts and culture into community development efforts. With those key ingredients, creative placemaking can be a winning proposition for rural revitalization.

What a Farmers Market Can Do

In honor of National Farmers Market Week (August 6 to 12), we’re recognizing the extraordinary markets that LISC has helped launch, grow and support, and how much good they bring to their communities.
