School nutrition professionals aim to make a difference in the life of every child, but some are more in need of a healthy meal and caring adult than others. In the March issue of School Nutrition, take a closer look at the stories behind at-risk children, whether it’s because they have a parent in jail, have substance abuse problems, live on the street or deal with another difficult situation.

  • Home Sweet Street. When kids are on their own with no place to call home, they need support that offers both safety and a preservation of their pride.
  • Paying the Price. When a parent goes to prison, the children left behind are faced with their own version of “hard time.”
  • Taking Refuge. Learn how the United States welcomes it most vulnerable new residents.
  • Prescription for Prevention. Raise your awareness about drugs and alcohol abuse among today’s teens.
    Bonus Web Content: Get resources on how to address the needs of students with substance abuse problems.
  • Be Somebody as Someone’s Buddy. Many at-risk kids will blossom with a little focused attention from a caring adult outside the family. Consider volunteering with a formal or informal mentoring program.
    Bonus Web Content: Learn more about mentoring programs and opportunities, including answers to common concerns and a list of national organizations and resources.
