15 How to Get Involved 15

16 Join the Grassroots Movement Add your voice to those of the 140,000+ people who have taken the No Kid Hungry Pledge at nokidhungry.org 16

17 Volunteer at a Summer Site Across Maryland, many summer meals sites struggle with adequate staffing and are sometimes unable to provide any enrichment programming at all However, we know that the most successful sites are the ones that offer enrichment activities that provide an extra incentive for kids to attend As former educators, you have experience in working with children that could be a vital resource to sites in Maryland 17

18 Spread the Word Individuals: Encourage 10 people to take the pledge at nokidhungry.org and send Share Our Strength s website and videos to friends and family members Write a letter to the editor in support of school breakfast or to raise awareness about issues of childhood hunger Guest blog on the nokidhungrymd.org website MRSPA: Become a Partnership member Include information about the Partnership to End Childhood Hunger in Maryland in newsletters and communications to members 18

19 Lead a Shopping Matters Tour Through our Shopping Matters program, Share Our Strength teaches families key food shopping skills that help them stretch their food budgets and shop in a healthier manner These tours are led by volunteers from a variety of backgrounds, and we encourage all who are interested to find out more about the program and how to lead a tour Find Out More: To find out more, visit shoppingmatters.org or contact Claire Sadeghzadeh, Educational Outreach Coordinator, at 19

20 Participate in Dine Out for No Kid Hungry TM Dine Out for No Kid Hungry is a national event that brings together thousands of restaurants and millions of consumers for one week in September to benefit children at risk of hunger in America. Restaurants customize their own involvement in the program, but Share Our Strength provides resources and best practices to help restaurants create their promotion Find Out More: Visit dineout.strength.org to find out which restaurants are participating in Dine Out in your community Dine Out for No Kid Hungry: September
