Call them meal kits, home delivery, or boxed meals; they are all the rage in the U.S. (They started in Sweden in 2007). There are large and increasingly smaller regional companies packaging ingredients for home cooks. You can find many articles with anecdotes about the pros and cons of meal kits, but little hard data. Most of the concerns about the meals have focused on excess packaging, food waste, and cost.

No Kid Hungry
No Kid Hungry is proud to promote the summer meals texting hotline, which began in 2013 and is entering its fifth year of operation. This hotline allows children and families to easily and quickly identify open summer meals sites in their area. To receive information about open summer meals sites, users text "FOOD" to 877-877, and receive a text prompting them to enter an address (either their home address or any other location of their choosing). Once the user replies with a full address and/or zip code, the service provides information about nearby meals sites or information about how to access sites if none are located in the vicinity. Spanish speakers may also access this information by texting "COMIDA" to 877-877 and receive a response in Spanish. Click here for more information on Summer Meals planning.
Department of Agriculture

Dairy Council of California

Healthy Food Choices in Schools via YouTube
The Healthy Food Choices in Schools Community of Practice Leadership is proud to announce a new Healthy Food Choices in Schools CoP educational video! The video features a youth gardening and culinary lessons program in Brevard County Public Schools in Florida.
This month the Canned Food Alliance will showcase a few simple recipes that aren't quite full recipes at all — in fact, they're just concepts. (And another example to showcase how you can help consumers meet The Dietary Guidelines.) Eating more healthfully does not have to be daunting; and you certainly don't have to have an elaborate cookbook on hand to throw together a nutritious meal.
