As part of our commitment to the surrounding neighborhood, the Academy prepares and delivers nutritious meals to children in in low-income areas during the summer, in addition to daily hot meals for veterans and the elderly at various community locations.
CALV participates in a federally funded program administered by Nevada’s Department of Agriculture: the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), providing free nutritious meals to children in low-income areas during the summer. In a typical year, our delivery trucks travel 30,000 miles, serving community centers, parks and recreation sites, housing developments, and churches in North Las Vegas, Las Vegas, and Henderson.
For many of the children and youth we feed, the meal we provide is the only one they get in a day. So delivering quality and nutritional value in the meals we prepare is one of our average strengths and highest priorities. The Academy has received two Western Region Sunshine Awards from the U.S. Department of Agriculture: in 2008 for Improving the Nutrition Quality and Appeal of Meals and in 2010 for Increasing Participation and Community Partnerships. The Academy has been participating in the SFSP since 2003.
