Please Support Healthy Children with Your Gift to HSC!

Give now to support HSC before the year ends!
This year has been Healthy Schools Campaign’s most impactful yet. Your year-end gift helps us keep making big change in the lives of children:
Help students raise their voices for healthy food
- Cooking up Change is a healthy cooking contest like no other, challenging high school chefs to re-imagine school lunch. In 2014, Cooking up Change will touch more than one million students — from Los Angeles to Little Rock! It’s our biggest year yet, with contests in 10 cities and national finals in Washington, D.C. Your gift shows that you support this work, putting student voices front-and-center in the national dialogue about school food.
Support lasting change and inspired communities
- Last summer, we successfully concluded a three-year campaign that supported more than 200 Chicago schools as they made big strides for wellness. That’s 90,000 students (over 40 percent of Chicago elementary schools) now benefiting from better school food, nutrition education, physical activity and more. Lessons from Chicago are already being spread far and wide. We’re sharing knowledge with schools across the country as well as at the federal level with the USDA and the U.S. Department of Education. Help us continue making changes that support students’ health and long-term success.
Please make a year-end gift to Healthy Schools Campaign and express your support of healthy futures for our nation’s children.
Plus: Your gift will be matched, thanks to a generous donor, if you make a new or increased gift now! That’s double the support for healthy children!
