We are thrilled to announce the recipients of 2016 Summer Mini-Grants

Building Blocks for Kids Collaborative (BBK): Is a place-based initiative with the mission of supporting the healthy development and education of all children, and the self-sufficiency of all families, living in the BBK Collaborative zone located in Richmond, California. The grant provided will help implement Health and Wellness in the Park Program which provides community directed and maintained evidence-based health programming in the Iron Triangle with a focus on the nearly 500 families associated with Chavez Elementary and Belding-Garcia Park. The focus of the program is to ensure that the children in the neighbourhood have access to at least one healthy meal per day and that family members have access to health promoting fitness and sports activities that they can do individually or together as a family. This program also encourages and supports the safe use of the park by neighbourhood families.
