Fuel Up to Play 60 is an in-school nutrition and physical activity program launched by the National Dairy Council and National Football League, in collaboration with the United States Drug Administration, to help encourage today's youth to lead healthier lives.
Through the program, grants of up to $4,000 will be awarded to qualified K-12 schools enrolled in Fuel Up to Play 60 to jumpstart healthy changes in the lifestyles of young people. Examples of projects supported by the program include projects to increase in-school breakfast participation, farm-to-school projects focused on the benefits of eating fresh, locally grown dairy and farm-raised foods, cafeteria makeovers, and healthy snack programs.
To be eligible, schools must be enrolled in Fuel Up to Play 60, have a registered program advisor, and participate in the National School Lunch Program.
