The 2020 NC Teachers of the Year (NCTOY) Team is partnering with No Kid Hungry NC to share their perspectives on child nutrition programs that keep students healthy and ready to learn.

2020 NC Teacher of the Year Maureen Stover (Cumberland County Schools) recorded a video to introduce the partnership between No Kid Hungry NC and the 2020 NCTOY Team — which includes the eight regional Teacher of the Year finalists from across the state — and explain why teachers are invested in the success of child nutrition programs.

“I hope that you will join us on this journey as we explore unique ways that school districts across the state are meeting our students’ basic needs and combatting food insecurity,” Maureen shares in the video.

You can also hear more from Maureen and others on Wednesday, Oct. 28 during No Kid Hungry NC’s session at the virtual NCASCD Whole Child Conference.
