West Fargo Public Schools Receives Grant from Dakota Medical Foundation

15 Feb

West Fargo Public Schools has received a grant in the amount of $3,000 from Dakota Medical Foundation to support the development of a model school wellness policy and a district-wide wellness council.

 A district committee is rewriting the district’s current school wellness policy.  Once complete, it will be assessed for comprehensiveness and wording strength using the WellSAT School Wellness Policy Assessment Tool.  The WellSAT assesses nutrition education and wellness promotion, standards for USDA school meals, nutrition standards for competitive and other foods and beverages, and physical education and physical activity.

 Dakota Medical Foundation focuses its efforts on improving health and access to medical and dental care in the region, with a special emphasis on children.  Since 1996, the Foundation has invested nearly $40 million to 348 nonprofit organizations in the region.  For more information, see www.dakmed.org.
