Fuel Up to Play 60 is pleased to announce a new nationwide funding initiative for K-12 schools enrolled in the in-school wellness program. The funding initiative provides money to help schools jumpstart and sustain healthy nutrition and physical activity improvements. Eligible schools can apply for up to $3,000 to help them increase awareness of and access to nutrient-rich foods and physical activity opportunities for students. The funds can be used for a variety of activities and tools, such as foodservice materials and equipment, nutrition and physical education materials, student and staff incentives, staff development and overall Fuel Up to Play 60 program implementation. There are several application windows each year, including upcoming deadlines on December 1, 2010, and February 15, 2011.
