Tips for Community Members

Are you a member of the community wondering how you can get involved in school wellness? Here are some places to start!

  • Find out if your local school has a wellness committee you can join to find out about the healthy eating and physical activity efforts there.
  • Partner with your local school to run a healthy community event, such as a fun run/walk or cooking demo.
  • Donate items that can help make a health and wellness event a success.
  • Help the school harness the expertise within the community. Is there a local dietitian or nutrition program who would host a grocery store tour? Or a fitness professional who would do a demo? Think outside the box how the community services and interests can help the local school!
