Promoting Healthy Eating and Physical Activity
Money for Your School
Give your health and wellness program a financial boost
You can give your health and wellness programs a financial boost by involving your students and staff in Movin and Munchin Schools, the Department of Public Instructions (DPI) wellness initiative.
What is Movin and Munchin?
Movin and Munchin Schools takes an innovative approach to the problem of poor nutrition choices and lack of physical activity among school children. The program encourages schools to develop creative strategies to promote healthy eating and increased physical activity among students and their families. Individuals earn Movin and Munchin Miles for various physical activities and wise nutrition choices.
All schools that participate will be considered for grants of up to $500 to use for improving their nutrition and physical education programs.
If your district has a WEA Trust health plan, you are eligible for an additional benefit. If your staff also participates in Movin and Munchin Schools, the WEA Trust will match grants awarded by DPI. The grant must be used to encourage other physical activity or healthy eating among your staff and students.
