FFI Expected to Receive Extended FundingPosted: November 9, 2012
The W.K. Kellogg Foundation is continuing its investment in the Northeast Iowa Food & Fitness Initiative (FFI). With this support, the initiative now moves from the implementation phase to an extended funding phase with a focus on long-term sustainability.
Collaboration has been a trademark of the FFI for the last five years. Six rural counties--Allamakee, Chickasaw, Clayton, Fayette, Howard, and Winneshiek-- have worked together to improve the health and well-being of children and their families in the region.
Their work as been grounded in the principle that they can do more by working together.
The growth has been accompanied by tremendous change and numerous accomplishments, which speak to the strength of this collaborative endeavor.
FFI staff work diligently to keep long-term partners engaged in the work, bring new partners to the table and sustain efforts to create vibrant communities where the healthy choice is the easy choice.
