School Gets Cafeteria Re-style

Students at a Kansas City elementary school now get to enjoy breakfast, lunch and even PE in a beautifully re-styled multi-purpose room! One of the great community connections RD Coach Diane Besler RD, LD made was helping the school sign up for Fuel Up to Play60 (FUTP60) through the National Dairy Council. She helped the school apply for and receive a FUTP60 grant to assist with the cafeteria re-style. By leveraging the funding through the FUTP60 grant with the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation’s educational grant from The Coca-Cola Company Foundation, a complete cafeteria re-style was made possible.
