Bringing Healthy Foods Together with Native Culture for Food Day 2014

Do your Club kids look forward to snack and meal time at your organization? As a program leader, are you trying to juggle healthy eating and preparing traditional foods? When national Food Day came across our radar, we thought this was a great opportunity for Clubs to infuse healthy eating with Native cultures and traditions!

Now, what is Food Day? We had the same question. Briefly, Food Day, celebrated on October 24, is an event that communities, schools, and organizations take part in around the country each year. The purpose of this nationwide celebration is to start a movement towards healthy, affordable, accessible, and sustainable food for all.

Using data to build your house

Tell us if you’ve felt like this before.

Things are going great at your Club. Attendance records are steady. You have regular volunteers. And the community has taken notice of the positive impact you’re making. Staff members are observing positive changes among your Club members—youth who used to get in trouble at school are now role models for younger members, grades are going up Club-wide, attitudes are improving.

Yup, things are great. You have all the stories you need to talk about the impact you’re making.

Then it comes time to write a grant application. Or an influential community partner wants to make a large donation to your Club. Or BGCA wants to highlight your successes for a newsletter.

What do they ask for? Data.
