Campaign for Healthier Schools

The School District of Philadelphia was a key partner in Philadelphia’s Communities Putting Prevention to Work nutrition and physical activity initiative in 2010-2012. In partnership with the Philadelphia Department of Public Health, The Food Trust, and the Bicycle Coalition this initiative focused on increasing the availability of healthy foods, nutritional awareness and increasing physical activity for all students. This work continues in the city initiative, Get Healthy Philly.
