This expansion of our work in out-of-school time helps us reach four million young people around the country and gives 4,000 clubs new accessibility to affordable healthy foods that meet our guidelines and USDA nutrition standards. Our partners in this initiative each provide essential elements to its success and sustainability.

With support from the food industry, purchasing organizations, and celebrity athletes, Boys and Girls Clubs of America will utilize new affordable healthy foods and celebrity support for physical activity to be a model for healthy out-of-school time.

"We believe by creating healthier environments that surround a child, we can reduce the prevalence of childhood obesity," said President Clinton. "Outside of the school day, millions of young people across the country spend the majority of their time in these structured programs. With the support of the food industry and athlete role models, Boys & Girls Clubs of America and thousands of other providers will have the tools needed to ensure they are creating healthy settings for young people."  https://www.healthiergeneration.org/news__events/2014/01/14/871/a_new_collaboration?utm_source=HOST%20national%20announcement&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=HOST%20national%20announcement&utm_source=Byte%3A+Jan+2014%3A+BGCA+Announcement&utm_campaign=HOST+national+announcement&utm_medium=email
