Food, Fun & Fitness Program” Wraps Up Successful Summer

The Recreation Department’s Food, Fun & Fitness Program wrapped up this afternoon. The program has ensured that children had access to nutritious lunches during the summer months. The six-week program is an example of the kinds of programs that Montgomery Recreation is seeking to provide to a wide segment of students of all ages.

Offered in partnership with Montgomery County Public Schools, Food, Fun & Fitness was a recreational lunchtime program offered free to County students. Participants received a healthy lunch and engaged in fun, recreational activities. Children learned about making healthy nutritional choices while participating in physical activity, games, arts and crafts.

More than 14,000 meals were served this summer, and 379 students were enrolled in the recreation program.

The program was offered at Fox Chapel, Francis Scott Key and Maryvale Elementary schools; Argyle and Roberto W. Clemente Middle schools; and John F. Kennedy High School.
