Students typically spend about half their waking hours at school, and they consume up to 50 percent of their calories there. That’s why Live Well Allegheny seeks to ensure that all kids get great tasting, nutritious meals — as well as the physical activity they need to thrive in school and in their lives.
We believe the best way to make an impact on the health and well-being of our County is through a coordinated, local effort. We must all work together to help Allegheny County’s citizens “Live Well.”
To be designated as a Live Well Allegheny School, a district or school must first indicate its intent to work with Allegheny County to accomplish the goals of the campaign. This can be achieved by executive action, if appropriate, or by resolution of the school board.
More details on how to become a Live Well Allegheny School (or School District) are listed on the Gain Live Well Status page.
