For Northern Virginia Public Schools

In collaboration with the Chin Family Charitable Fund and the J.O.Y. Charitable Fund, donor advised funds with the Community Foundation, grants are made each year to individual public schools in Northern Virginia that implement a program or strategy to encourage better nutrition or more activity among their student body during the school year.

Examples of school based initiatives the grants could help support include, but are not limited to:
  • Starting an after school activity club that promotes physical fitness.
  • Starting a walking club for students and teachers.
  • Creating and planting a vegetable garden on school grounds.
  • Developing a school health advisory council comprised of students, parents, teachers, administrators, other school staff and community representatives.
  • Developing and sharing calorie counts and nutritional information for all school breakfasts and lunches so students can make healthy choices.
