    Washington, D.C. — Even as House Republicans have declared immigration reform dead for this year and President Barack Obama has vowed to take executive action on immigration, the influx of child refugees coming across the southern border has reignited a debate over immigration policy, as both sides debate how to handle the arrivals. While there is heightened attention to the minors coming in at the border, there are young U.S.-born people who are paying very close attention to a range of immigration issues.A new report from the Center for American Progress and the Center for the Study of…

    I love easy weeknight meals for my family. When I was working outside the home, most nights I wouldn’t walk through the door until after 6 pm, to then start cooking dinner. This is how I learned to cook fast, simple meals with little ingredients. One of my go-to meals has always been pasta. Not only do I love eating it, it’s also a quick meal to make! During my visit to the Walmart headquarters earlier this summer, I learned that the Wild Oats Marketplace Organic product line (new to Walmart stores) offers a variety of organic pasta sauce for about the same price as other brands.

    High-flying adventure awaits you in Disney’s Planes: Fire & Rescue, playing in theaters in 3D as of today! I’m far from an expert on planes, but I’ve always been intrigued by them, and the illustration and animation of each plane in this movie seemed very realistic. The sequel to last year’s Planes brings a better dynamic and more “life” to the story than the original. It casts several familiar voices such as, Dane Cook, Julie Bowen, Ed Harris, and even Erik Estrada - just to name a few. The main character, Dusty, emerges from the first Planes film as a racing…

  • Walmart Foundation Helps Children In Need Gain Access to Meals This Summer & Encourages Families to Eat Healthy Together!

    It’s always amazingly heartbreaking to hear how many kids are dependent on school meals for their daily nutrition and to realize that for some children, their school lunch (and breakfast if they eat it at school too) may be the only full meal they eat each weekday. Of course, this means that during the summer, many families are left in challenging situations. According to a FRAC summer nutrition report issued in June, the number of children participating in the USDA’s Summer Nutrition Programs increased last year, yet only 1 in 7 children who needed summer meals received them.

    I’m a fan of easy desserts and with the Fourth of July holiday being upon us, I thought I would try something new and different with my family this year. You may know that I don’t exactly consider myself a baker, so easy, simple, no-fuss desserts are especially my kind of desserts. Assembling this biscuit and berries dessert, akin to a strawberry biscuit shortcake, definitely fits that description – the recipe has few ingredients, the steps aren’t complicated, and most importantly, it’s delicious! Using fresh strawberries and blueberries from the Walmart produce…
