Rhode Island Action for Healthy Kids
Welcome to the Rhode Island Team
Action for Healthy Kids is the nation’s leading nonprofit and largest volunteer network fighting childhood obesity and undernourishment by partnering with schools to improve nutrition and physical activity to help our kids learn to eat right, be active every day, and be ready to learn.
The Rhode Island Action for Healthy Kids Team/The RI Healthy Schools Coalition (HSC) now engages over 100 RI organizations, schools and districts. The coalition is quite simple: all that's required to become a member is to simply agree to support the Coalition's mission.
The RI Healthy Schools Coalition continues to support the work of healthier school communities and has recently adopted a new mission statement:
"The Rhode Isalnd Healthy Schools Coalition will support RI school communities in effectively sustaining aqn activie wellness committee. These committees will maintain a dynamic wellness policy that encompasses all aspects of healthy living and is actively communicated to the entire school community.
There are many opportunities to get involved with Action for Healthy Kids in Rhode Island--from becoming a team member, to attending Action for Healthy Kids’ events, to making a financial contribution--you can help create a safer environment for our kids!
