Allen Frear PTA in the Caesar Rodney school district was awarded the National PTA Action for Healthy Kids “Parents for Healthy Kids Game on Grant”. Action for Healthy Kids, supported by ALDI and in collaboration with National PTA awarded approximately 600 schools with Game On grants for the 2017-2018 school year. These grants provide funding for physical activity and nutrition initiatives that support schools in becoming nationally recognized as health-promoting.
The grants, funded by ALDI, aim to expand student access to in-school physical activity and healthy foods, improve knowledge and behaviors around exercise and nutrition, and provide funding and support to PTAs in engaging parents and families in these efforts both at school and at home.
“Parents are a powerful force for change in schools and can help bring together school staff and community partners to create healthier learning environments for students,” said Rob Bisceglie, CEO, Action for Healthy Kids. “The complementary missions of AFHK and National PTA, combined with the ALDI commitment to helping all families live healthier lives, makes our collaboration and these grants powerful tools.
