At our last strategy action team meeting, we discussed both the School Food & Fitness Coordinator job description and the Focus School Partnership grant application.

Library (5423 Delridge Way SW, Seattle, WA 98106)
At our last strategy action team meeting we discussed holding a focus group with FEEST youth to determine some marketing strategies for our Healthy Corner Stores (Delridge) and Produce Markets (White Center) work. We'll move forward on finalizing a workplan, timeline, and activity descriptions for healthy food retail pilot projects at our next meeting.
