Fuel Up To Play 60

Through the Fuel Up to PLAY 60 program, the New York Jets and American Dairy Association Northeast are offering two (2) $5,000 Hometown Grants to eligible schools in Nassau County and Suffolk County that best showcase how their students stay active for 60 minutes per day, as well as provide increased access to school breakfast and ensure their students are fueled to learn. Grants will be awarded to one school in each county to help facilitate sustainable physical activity and eating improvements. Schools not already enrolled in the Fuel Up to PLAY 60 program can enroll at www.fueluptoplay60.com and email Kristina Deecher at kdeecher@Milk4u.org for the online grant application. Fuel Up to Play 60 is an in-school nutrition and physical activity program launched by National Dairy Council and National Football League, with additional support from the US Department of Agriculture.  The program encourages youth to consume nutrient-rich foods and achieve at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day.  Proper nutrition and consistent physical activity are both necessities for maintaining a healthy child.
