White House Official Cites Fox Leadership Program's Work Fighting Hunger

November 4, 2013

"The City of Brotherly Love puts its motto into practice," says Melissa Rogers, Executive Director of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, in a blog post on the USDA web site. She goes on to cite Frederic Fox Leadership Professor of Politics, Religion, and Civil Society John DiIulio and Penn's Fox Leadership Program:

"In Philadelphia, about 22% of children live in households that have trouble putting enough food on the table for every member of the family. That means when school is out, and school meals are not available, many kids are vulnerable. The Summer Food Service Program plays a critical role in making sure kids have access to nutritious meals so that they can begin the school year well nourished and alert. My friend and former director of the White House’s Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives during the George W. Bush Administration, Professor John DiIulio, invited me to Philadelphia, where he currently works at the University of Pennsylvania’s Fox Leadership Program."
