With a Spring 2016 Aspiramos Juntos grant, Healthy Schools Campaign is providing stakeholders with knowledge, support and information to improve the food, nutrition education and physical activity environments in Chicago schools.
Cooking Up Change is a district-wide annual culinary competition hosted by Healthy Schools Campaign. Students create healthy meal options and serve them to the school advisory group. Chicago Public Schools integrates these student-created meals into the menu on an ongoing basis.

This fall, Healthy Schools Campaign and partners constructed three schoolyards in Wadsworth (Woodlawn), Corkery (South Lawndale), and Gunsaulus (Brighton Park). These new schoolyards support active play and outdoor learning for students. Other Healthy Schools Campaign partners have started groundwork for 11 additional schoolyard transformations.
