NUTRITION AND FITNESS EDUCATION

Reinforcing our Commitment

In 2016 it was reported "half of America's childcare workers need food stamps, welfare payments or Medicaid". As an effort to support recruitment and retention in ECE we recognize food insecurity and wellness can be barriers to maintaining sustainable employment.  With our organization’s mission always in mind, we strive to find new strategies for dealing with this challenge.  Contact us to learn more about our Farm to ECE and KeyFit Programs as a commitment to this cause.
