Hello nutrition and hunger prevention partners!
Please join us this Friday, May 18, 2018 in raising awareness of the Summer Food Service Program across Oregon. The Summer Meals Promotion day aims to connect families early on to local programs in their communities, so they can plan for a fun and healthy summer!
We hope you’ll help in the following ways:
Check out the Communications Guide on Google Drive for easy social media content and images
Share the short newsletter article included within the Communications Guide – in 5 languages!
Talk about SummerFoodOregon.org; it will have a new look beginning May 15, will be available in five languages, and will feature a Summer Meals Experience survey for families so we can better meet their needs (with drawings for $20 gift cards)
Tag @Summer Meals Oregon and use #summermealsor when you visit local programs or to show off your own local program.
Please pass this information along to your need-to-know networks!
