Even though the time spent connecting to community based activities has been brief (moved to Arkansas in April 2013), a significant connection was made with the "Arkansas No Kid Hungry Campaign".

Back in California, I had received training and completed volunteer hours for the COOKING MATTERS: TEACHING FAMILIES HOW TO COOK HEALTHY MEALS ON A BUDGET.

I attended the annual Arkansas Public Health Association Convention in May 2013 and among the exhibitors was the Arkansas No Kid Hungry Campaign that included Cooking Matters among its programs.

I signed up to volunteer and completed 2 assignments during the year. The campaign seeks to empower low-income families with skills, knowledge and confidence to prepare healthy meals on a budget through Cooking Matters six-week cooking courses and grocery store tours.
