Bayfield Middle School Receives Funds For Fuel Up To Play 60
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BAYFIELD MIDDLE SCHOOL RECEIVES FUNDS FOR FUEL UP TO PLAY 60
Wisconsin Dairy Farmers and Green Bay Packers Support School Wellness Program
Bayfield, WI – Bayfield Middle School has been chosen to receive $1000 to support its Fuel Up to Play 60 initiative. Bayfield Middle School was selected from several schools that applied for funding across the state to help them jump-start and sustain healthy nutrition and physical activity improvements. Wisconsin schools are eligible to receive up to $1,000 to help them increase awareness of and access to nutrient-rich foods and physical activity opportunities for students. Funding for this competitive program is provided by the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board through Wisconsin’s dairy farmers.
Fuel Up to Play 60 is an in-school nutrition and physical activity program launched by the National Dairy Council (NDC) and the National Football League (NFL), with additional partnership support from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). The program encourages youth to consume nutrient-rich foods (low-fat and fat-free dairy, fruits, vegetables, lean proteins and whole grains) and achieve at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day.
Funds for Fuel Up to Play 60 provide support for a variety of activities and tools, such as foodservice materials and taste-testing supplies, nutrition and physical education equipment. The Bayfield Middle School Fuel Up to Play 60 student team plans to use grant funds to “Snack Smarter” by offering samples of healthy snack choices including fruit, yogurt and milk smoothies. The Fuel Up to Play 60 student team also plans to encourage students and familes to get active with the play “You Can Do It We All Can.” The student leadership team will be surveying the school and choosing activities to promote healthy lifestyles. In addition to the grant dollars, the Bayfield Middle School was also chosen to receive an NFL Flagfootball Kit and curriculum valued at over $300.
More than 70,000 schools across the United States are participating in Fuel Up to Play 60. Fuel Up to Play 60 is designed to engage and empower youth to take action for their own health by implementing long-term, positive changes for themselves and their schools.
“Fuel Up to Play 60 has really taken off in Wisconsin. Wellness champions and students in more than 1,700 schools have embraced the program, and these funds will help many of the participating schools to do even more,” said Laura Wilford, Director, Wisconsin Dairy Council.
