Examples of Our Impact in Schools

With a $125,000 investment the Boys & Girls Club of Stanislaus and the West Modesto King Kennedy Neighborhood Collaborative implemented a Triple Play after school program in Modesto High Schools that helped students eat more fresh produce, engage in more physical activity, and better understand the relationship between behaviors, choices and health.


At Eisenhut Elementary, an after-school program combines gardening, dance and exercise with healthy snacks, art and academics to help students thrive. Each child takes home a bulging bag of fresh produce and pantry staples twice a month. “I never tried it before. Lettuce is really good.” - Miraya Mireles, 8, Eisenhut student
