We already have 3 summer sites and we will be helping 4 additional programs support their summer meal services! Altogether, we will be serving in 7 different locations, which means more kids will have greater access to nutritious meals!! AND WHAT IS GREATER THAN THAT?!

“My wife and I are committed to ending childhood hunger in Montana,” said Governor Bullock. “Through private partnerships, these grants have helped serve over 650,000 more breakfast meals during this school year than the year before. The progress we’re seeing today is translating into a stronger, healthier, and more stable Montana for years to come.”

Many children in Montana don't have a chance to eat a hot, nutritious dinner with their families at night. As we shared a moment of silence and some tears together, we realized that we are now a part of something bigger than ourselves.

We planned a meal using our traditional source of protein, the buffalo. The Blackfeet Tribe's Iinii Iniative donated about 200 lbs. of meat. Our entrée was buffalo chili Indian topped on fry bread loaded with cheese, lettuce and tomatoes.

I have been getting to know my city and the school officials that I and the others before me have worked with. It has been a great start to my service and I have enjoyed meeting all new people and the people who have advocated for the program and supported it.

This was such a fun week for me. I really enjoyed getting the students and staff involved in building awareness for Fight Childhood Hunger Week. The kids were very kind and courteous!

Fight Childhood Hunger Week has been both challenging and exciting. At the elementary school we had a riddle competition in which a food-related question was posed each day in the announcements and the first letter of each day's answer spelled out the word F*O*O*D. Quite a few students came up with the correct answer, so a winner was chosen from among them via a drawing.

It is my hope that students left the exercise equipped with a little more knowledge as to why hunger exists, what it looks like, and how it might impact families in Helena so that they can advocate for themselves and others as they grow into adulthood.

I have teamed up with a group of motivated high school students to host an event, “Lets Fight Childhood Hunger on the Blackfeet Reservation 2017”. The event will take place in the high school cafeteria/auditorium on April 20th, 2017. We have not yet finalized our menu but are hoping to showcase our own healthy, traditional source of protein: the buffalo.
