“Fuel Up to Play 60 is an in-school nutrition and physical activity program launched by National Dairy Council and NFL, in collaboration with the USDA, to help encourage today’s youth to lead healthier lives.

Fuel Up to Play 60 and the NFL are once again coming together to support local schools and communities through the Hometown Grants program. The NFL, through Fuel Up to Play 60, will provide $10,000 per NFL club market ($320,000 total) in grant money to help school districts and/or individual schools facilitate sustainable physical activity and healthy eating improvements.”

Congratulations to Arlington K-8 for receiving this year’s Hometown Grant in Pittsburgh!
