It is my pleasure to announce that Firebellies has been awarded a $400 grant to fund the future of our Middle School Cooking Project.
The grant, which is awarded by the organization Healthy Rice County, is part of a state-wide health improvement program (SHIP) run by the Minnesota Department of Health. SHIP addresses the top three causes of preventable illness and death in the United States: tobacco use, physical inactivity and poor nutrition. The work of SHIP occurs in four areas including Schools, Worksites, Health Care Facilities, and Communities.
We are so glad to be able to continue this project!
