March 3: Delaware 4-H, local high schools hosting forum on healthy lifestyles

February 25, 2010 under CANR News, Cooperative Extension, Events

Appoquinimink and Middletown High Schools along with Delaware 4-H are hosting a community issues forum on “Weighing the Options, How Can We Encourage Healthy Weights Among America’s Youth” on Wednesday March 3, from 6:00-8:00 PM at the Appoquinimink High School, Commons Area, 1080 Bunker Hill Road, Middletown Del. 

This forum is open to the public to share their ideas and thoughts on how to help youth live a healthier lifestyle in the Middletown, Odessa & Townsend (MOT) area.  A $2,000 grant is allotted for solutions made through the discussion and conclusions from this community forum.  All residents of the M.O.T. area are encouraged to attend and voice their opinions on this issue.   We hope you’ll come out to share your ideas and support today’s students (tomorrow’s leaders) who are seeking grass-roots solutions to the challenge of increasing the nutritional health of youth in our area.
