Thursday, June 16th, 2011

Child Nutrition Outreach Coordinator VISTA

NJSACC, the Network for NJ’s Afterschool Communities, in partnership with the Afterschool Alliance, seeks an AmeriCorps VISTA volunteer to raise awareness of and increase participation in the child nutrition programs available for afterschool suppers and summer meal programs here in New Jersey.

The newly enacted Child Nutrition Act expands access to suppers for low-income students in afterschool programs. However, only a fraction of eligible programs take advantage of this funding and many do not even know that it exists.  Students also need access to food and learning opportunities when schools close for the summer.  Summer enrichment programs are also a platform for providing a good breakfast and lunch, healthy living activities and access to community resources for engaged learning opportunities when school is not in session.

Assignment Description:

A.     Know the program details, requirements and regulations of the afterschool and summer meals programs. Meet the agency leaders connected to this work.
B.     Identify afterschool programs in the state that are eligible for funding.
C.     Map where the afterschool snacks and meals programs are. Identify critical gaps of service in the state and develop a plan to increase knowledge among possible partners and intermediaries. A “critical gap” is a high-need community with less than the state’s average participation of sites to serve the eligible children in that community.
D.     Identify schools or program sites not participating in afterschool or summer food programs and barriers that may prohibit offering the nutrition services.
E.     Conduct outreach to school districts with the largest numbers of programs eligible but not participating to determine operational issues at the district level that may exist.
F.      Target the communities interested in changing their current status of non-participation.
G.    In the targeted communities Work with programs, state officials, school district officials and community children’s advocates to remove operations barriers or policy obstacles.
H.     In the targeted communities, work with food advocates to engage non-school partners that could be meal program intermediaries.
I.        Identify summer enrichment programs and summer meal programs in a community in order to develop collaborations. Establish a list serve to inform these enrichment providers and meal providers
J.      Review progress with the local project review committee and describe how low-income community members have been involved in project decision-making.
