Be a part of Chicago’s parent-led movement for healthy schools.

Parents are key in making sure our schools are healthy environments for our children. The Parents United for Healthy Schools Leadership Institute comprises four sessions that each focuses on a different aspect of school health and wellness. Join the Parents United movement to address health disparities and learn more about speaking up for social and health justice and how you can make a difference for your child—and children across the city!

You will learn how good nutrition impacts student learning, how the CPS school meal program works and how parents can make sure students receive nutritious food. You’ll receive surveys to fill out to highlight opportunities in your school’s food service program. There will be a short debrief meeting following the collection of surveys for parents who participated.
