Using data from the U.S. Census Bureau and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Opportunity Atlas tracks the outcomes of 20 million Americans from childhood to their mid-30s in all 70,000 census tracts with the ability to analyze findings by race, gender, and income.

A new tool from No Kid Hungry allows summer meals advocates, program sponsors, and state agencies to easily and quickly access historical usage data from No Kid Hungry’s summer meals texting hotline (text “FOOD” or “COMIDA” to 877-877).

As summer meals partners plan for 2019, data gleaned from the texting hotline can yield insights about when and where families seek information about sites, whether sites were in operation when families texted, and general usage trends over time.

webinar recording is available to guide users on how to use the No Kid Hungry Summer Meals Texting Dashboard tool.

However, CDC research suggests that families in rural communities have less access to school-based OST programs than those in urban areas.
