.J. -- Through a grant from Unilever here, Kids Across America Kamp broke ground last week on a new leadership center geared toward teaching about food and proper nutrition. KAA, Branson, Mo., is a sports camp for inner-city youth that hires college athletes and coaches to train and mentor campers each summer. The Unilever United States Foundation's three-year, $250,000 grant will fund the kitchen and dining area of KAA's Kaleo Leadership Learning Center as a training clinic for campers in food preparation, nutrition, food procurement and culinary skills. Unilever executives will also rotate through camp sessions as mentors on leadership, time management, business communications, fund-raising, and interfacing with local businesses and leaders.
