Eat Smart Move More Anderson County
More than 100 teenagers and adults from across South Carolina attended the 6th Annual Youth Summit on July 27th at The Meeting Place Church in Columbia to learn about youth-led policy changes and how to advocate effectively.
Six communities participated in the Let’s Go! South Carolina initiative, implementing strategies across multiple sectors to increase access to healthy foods and physical activity, and have had a huge impact on community health.
City of Anderson residents will soon have a new place for their pooches to play, in addition to a new community green space.
Congratulations to all of the schools awarded for leading comprehensive health, physical activity, and wellness efforts.
For the past three years, schools in Anderson School District Four have been implementing smart snacks and healthy fundraisers, putting them ahead of the ball when it comes to meeting the USDA’s newly implemented Smart Snacks in Schools standards.
Anderson schools are among thousands around the country already providing “smart” snacks for students – well in advance of updated federal lunch standards that begin this year.
Anderson County School District 4 took a huge step by eliminating unhealthy fundraisers.
Grant efforts will encourage, assist and provide resources to local schools and PTA/PTO’s to implement healthy school activities and policies.
