4‑H Healthy Habits White Paper: Walmart Foundation
Walmart’s investment of over $13 million across the last decade has provided more than 1 million youth and families with important nutrition education. The investment has also built the capacity of 4‑H educators, providing them with tools and training to help them reach underserved audiences in African, Latino and Native American communities with culturally relevant programming.
Beyond the Gap
Research undertaken by youth development organizations such as 4-H shows that COVID-19 has exacerbated the inequities our young people face in terms of their mental health, their access to education and their employability – particularly amongst those who were already experiencing trauma, systemic social inequity and other disadvantages prior to the pandemic.
