Education and Nutrition: Reaching Children during the COVID-19 Pandemic Webinar Series

With over 1.5 billion learners affected by the COVID-19 outbreak, many countries are struggling to ensure children continue to receive a nutritious meal.

Join the Global Child Nutrition Foundation (GCNF) for a series of interactive webinars for government officials and their implementing partners to discuss strategies for addressing school meal program disruptions in the short-term, how they’ll continue in the future, how to re-start programs, and more.

Webinar 1: How partners are safely getting food to school-age children and their families

Date: Thursday 7 May, 9.00 a.m. EDT
