The Boeing Center for Children's Wellness (The Lean Team)

          

Mission: Our mission is to reduce childhood Obesity in the State of S.C. by creating healthier school environments through innovative wellness initiatives.

Communities

Communities- just like individuals- become healthier by prioritizing healthy eating and active living. What are ways in which your community prioritizes health? Does your community support Farm to School programs or Farmer's Markets? Community gardens? Are grocery stores within neighborhoods or several miles away? Are bike and pedestrian walkways considered when planning new developments or remodeling old ones? Do your policy makers support Safe Routes to Schools programs?
