Help Support the GGS Campaign for Healthy Habits

Help us bring the benefits of Growing Great Schools to the greater Hartford area. Our GoFundMe campaign will help fund our efforts in studying the effects of infusing Physical Literacy on the programs run by COMPASS Youth Collaborativehttp://www.compassyc.org/

Growing Great Schools (GGS) inspires communities to create a culture of wellness by connecting food, health and the environment. The vision of GGS is to empower students and their families to become active participants in their nutritional and physical health, while caring for the planet. GGS was founded in 2010 by a group of West Hartford parents with a passion for improving the quality of the school meals. Today, the organization focuses more broadly on equipping schools and communities with the tools they need to address overall health and wellness in order to bring about sustainable change.

What We Do

Classroom

GGS inspires communities to create a culture of wellness by connecting food, health and the environment in the classroom, in the lunchroom and on the playground.

Why We Do It

Lunchroom

According to the CDC more than a third of U.S. children and adolescents are overweight or obese. We must supply them with the tools necessary to make changes to become a healthier generation.

Get Involved

Playground

You can make a difference by getting involved in the work that is happening in our community everyday. Help with salad bar days, farmers’ markets, school gardens and recess activities.
