Let’s Move, Blaine! coalition given big grant

If you’ve been following the Whatcom F2S Fresh News, you’ll remember when Let’s Move, Blaine! hit its stride.

Let’s Move, Blaine! is doing everything they can to get healthy, local foods into the hands (and bellies) of children and families in the Blaine school district.

“The idea is that if kids grow up in a culture of eating and growing fresh fruits and vegetables, they’ll continue doing it later in life,” said Dan Persse, LMB co-chair. “We want them to learn these skills early, because it’s the same principle for why they learn math now – so they can apply it later.”

Helping provide the education and resources needed to accomplish this mission just got a little easier for LMB. Last week, LMB was awarded an $11,500 grant from the Sustainable Whatcom Fund Advisory Committee and will be using the funds to further educate students and families in the district.
