The "Healthy Community Development " Mini-Grant was established by the NJ Department of Health & Senior Services' Office of Nutrition & Fitness and the NJ Council on Physical Fitness and Sports. This office coordinates the state-wide partnership for nutrition, physical activity & obesity. In 2010 we were generously awarded $10,000. This grant created a schoolyard garden and 2 fitness clusters.
The EJ Garden Team thanks you for your letters of support
The "Healthy Community Development" Mini-Grant's project goals include;
preventing obesity and other associated chronic diseases by focusing
on policy and environment to make healthy choices easier for NJ residents &
creating environments where healthy eating & physical activity opportunities are
available, affordable, culturally appropriate and easy.
We would not have been successful without your written responses.
