As the school year comes to a close, we want to thank everyone who has helped make this year a success! With the generous support and engagement of our many foundation, corporate, and nonprofit partners, volunteers, board members, donors, and YOU, more than 10,000 kids got to participate in unique opportunities to try fresh foods, move and learn in the classroom, get their hands dirty in the garden, and have fun while being active.
We want to extend a special thank you to four board members who will be rolling off after 29 years of combined service to preventing childhood obesity and creating opportunities to make healthy fun for kids across the region. Tom, Ed, Brian, and Vineeta, thank you for your time, passion, dedication, investment, and expertise and your tremendous impact on children in our region!
