NRPA Launches National Hunger Relief Initiative at Indianapolis' Douglass Park
Date:6/21/2010

Senator Lugar Speaks at Breakfast with Park’s Day Campers

Ashburn, Va. (Vocus) June 21, 2010 -- The National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) is pleased to announce the launch of its national hunger relief initiative supporting summer and before/after school food programs, which took place on Monday, June 21, 2010, at Indianapolis Parks and Recreation’s Douglass Park. NRPA received a $2.1 million grant from the Walmart Foundation for this initiative. Spanning two-years, it will enable agencies like Indianapolis Parks and Recreation to serve an estimated 4.9 million meals to children nationwide.

“As millions of families across the United States are struggling financially due to the recession, child hunger is significantly on the rise—particularly during the summer months when school is not in session,” said Barbara Tulipane, CEO of NRPA. “Today we celebrate the launch of our national hunger relief program with the gift from the Walmart Foundation, which will bring nutritious meals to millions of children in need—fighting hunger in a real way and laying the foundation for learning and growth.”

U.S. Senator Richard Lugar attended to enjoy breakfast with the day campers and speak about his commitment to securing legislation that supports hunger relief and nutritional education programs for those in need.

Walmart Foundation representatives also attended. The grant is part of Walmart’s recently announced $2 billion commitment to help end hunger in America through its “Fighting Hunger Together” initiative, which includes $250 million pledged to support hunger relief organizations at the national, state and local levels through 2015.
