Secondary Schools - SNAP-ED

The Secondary Schools – SNAP-Ed Sector is funded through SNAP-Ed to partner with middle schools and high schools in Georgia. During this partnership, each school is provided with resources and services to help them improve in their healthy eating and physical activity behaviors. This is done through direct education, peer-to-peer engagement, policies, systems and environmental changes.

Power Up For 30

Middle School Power Up for 30 is an initiative supported by Georgia Shape and the Georgia Departments of Public Health and Education funded through Centene Foundation for Quality Healthcare and Peachstate Health Plan. The initiative focuses on integrating at least 30 minutes of physical activity throughout the school day through strategies, resources and professional development based on the CDC’s Comprehensive School Physical Activity Program (CSPAP). 

Share Our Strength and School Breakfast 

Through a partnership with Share Our Strength and the national No Kid Hungry campaign, HealthMPowers will be partnering with high-need schools across Georgia to support and expand school breakfast programs through outreach, planning initiatives, training and marketing. Funding available for high-need schools can provide necessary equipment, supplies, materials and breakfast supporting initiatives, getting breakfast successfully out of the cafeteria and onto the desks of students
