Photo Shoot with Thriving Communities, Thriving Children Partners!
During the month of April, we had the exciting opportunity to attend two photo shoots in New Orleans and throughout Mississippi highlighting the wonderful nutrition education activities happening through the Thriving Communities, Thriving Children (TC2) grant!These photo shoots, as well as funding for TC2, were made possible by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. During the shoots, we were able to snap some pictures of our own, showing the exciting work happening in elementary schools and early childhood/head start centers.
