"Let's Move" time to join the effort!

Central Dallas Ministries plays a part in the "Let's Move" initiative here in Dallas by providing healthy after school and summer lunches to thousands of children.

This summer our Nurture, Knowledge and Nutrition program will deliver meals to over 200 sites where children take advantage of organized summer activities.

In addition, thanks to a partnership involving our AmeriCorps team, PepsiCo and the Texas Department of Agriculture, an additional 500,000 meals will be delivered to thousdands of children who are not enrolled in organized programs, but who need the food. All together we expect to deliver and serve well over 1 million meals.  Our efforts focus on reaching as many children as possible with healthier food than ever before.

The video provides some national context for our local efforts. Enjoy!
