This piece is named "Doves", it represent peace and happiness which I think goes well with your theme health and healthy living. The two parts of health are physical and mental. Physical health is eating clean and exercising. In doing so you can gain mental health to find peace and happiness and know that you are doing something good for yourself and your well-being. -Caroline Dorion, 11th grade

March marks the beginning of spring, and for me is a month filled with hope. It is also National Nutrition Month and National Youth Art Month- both relevant themes in the work of People’s Resource Center.

We are so excited to be partnering with College of DuPage this year to celebrate these important topics through an amazing display of artwork made by young artists in our community! We sent out a call for artwork made by youth in grades K-12 that explored healthy eating. Students from all over the county sent in images of original work they made using all different types of materials. We are delighted to also join the conversation on food scarcity, good nutrition and the importance of food pantries during a live webinar "Food Is Money: The Economics of Nutrition" Wednesday, March 17. I hope you enjoy these amazing creations as much as I do. I am awed by how many kids were inspired to make art and let their creativity shine despite challenging times. I am also filled with hope as I flip through these pages. Enjoy!
