Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goals are twofold:
- Every child who needs supplemental nutrition get it.
- Children learn the nutritional value of tasty, healthy food and start making great food choices.

Our strategy is to become the community resource on supplemental nutrition and nutritional education.

WIN is currently collaborating with many community organizations. These partnerships help identify children and families in need and we are able to respectfully engage them in our programs.
Our collaboration with the school district includes participating in the nutritional educational component of a curriculum that includes the School Farm and Garden. Children plant, tend and harvest their vegetables and then WIN teaches them how to prepare the harvest. During the curriculum, the kids learn about the benefits of nutrition on their growing minds and bodies. And now they have some kitchen "skills" to prepare meals and maintain the nutritional value of that food. We are expanding the curriculum into additional levels at the schools.

WIN progress with the Delivered Meals program is indicated by the 40% growth in 2014. Our challenge is to fundraise to purchase the groceries for that program.
Our educational progress is underway. We are expanding our pilot program to other grade levels and will determine the success of the expanded curriculum over time.
