Nutrition Education and Programs for Migrant Students
It is hard to comprehend that the very same families, who harvest food across the country, often times lack the very nutrition they help provide to others. The provision of meaningful nutrition education and access to nutritional programs is a valuable support service for migrant students. Good nutrition not only affects their success in school, but also their long-term health and well-being of each individual.

These are individuals who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence.
