* PRC - No Kid Hungry in Helena
In Montana, one in five children struggle with hunger. PRC VISTAs serving with Montana No Kid Hungry are dedicated to putting an end to child hunger by improving food access through increasing participation in school meal programs. These efforts ensure that students remain healthy and ready to learn. PRC VISTAs serving with Montana No Kid Hungry partner with school districts—in this case, the Helena Public School District— to develop the capacity to increase school breakfast and summer meal programs along with other food access projects. Located in beautiful Helena, Montana’s state capital and the “Queen City of the Rockies,” the VISTA serving with Montana No Kid Hungry- Helena will have easy access to Glacier and Yellowstone National Parks, an expansive trail system, and endless opportunities to explore the outdoors through hiking, biking, fishing, and skiing in the heart of Big Sky Country! To end child hunger, we need you to serve in Helena!

Member Duties : The overall goal of this project is to increase food access for low-income students in the Helena School District by expanding school breakfast and summer meal programs along with other food access projects. To do this, the VISTA will: conduct assessments to understand the barriers preventing participation in school meal programs; develop a strategic plan to implement a “Breakfast after the Bell” model in certain schools; create a strategic plan and expand summer meal programs; and construct a strategic plan with local organization to introduce the “The Family Dinner Project.” To ensure the success and sustainability of the project, the VISTA will work collaboratively with staff, teachers, students, and community partners within the school district.
