Greenheart Students Share the Power of Healthy Eating

By: Billie Burgess, a Local Coordinator in Michigan.


For Global Youth Service Day 2013, CCI Greenheart students from two schools came together to help raise awareness of the need for healthy living. They joined forces with the Local Wildcat PRIDE Runfest Committee and Lakeview School Wellness Committee to help raise money for programs to fight Childhood Obesity. They worked together to provide a healthy dinner for the community. The purpose of the dinner was to educate the adults of the community to alternative ways to eat, in turn providing healthier choices to the kids of the community. GYSD MI 2

All that attended were pleasantly surprised to find that they enjoyed the healthy versions, even the green smoothies. In the end we were also able to enjoy the fact that we had the world in the room helping to provide this great service to the community.
