Healthy Schools – Healthy Students Project, is an initiative of the Iowa Department of Education’s Team Nutrition Program that aims to empower elementary students through school-based nutrition education, healthy school environments, promotion of school meals, and engagement of school staff, parents, and the community.
Schools that are selected will received a $1,000 sub-grant to support wellness activities. Additional funds will be available to deliver nutrition education and taste testing in 4th grade classrooms.
This project will begin next school year (17-18). Elementary schools will have the opportunity to apply to be a part of the project at the end of March.
