- Find out if your local school has a wellness council you can join to find out about the healthy eating and physical activity efforts there.
- Partner with your local school to run a 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 that would host a grocery store tour? Or a fitness professional who would do a demo? How about a restaurant that would cook up veggies to try on a flat grill at a family event? Think outside the box how the community services and interests can help the local school!

- Do you have expertise you can lend?
