In furthering our mission to collect and preserve the history of child nutrition programs, the Child Nutrition Archives launched the Oral History Project to capture the stories of past and present child nutrition professionals. To date we have recorded 251 oral histories. Check out these inspiring stories by clicking on any of the links below.
