FCSfit Project Grants

FCSfit Project Grants

AAFCS is pleased to announce the first two recipients of the FCSfit Project Grant. We're excited about the capacity for impact these grants have on individuals, families, and communities:

FCSfit KIDS: Promoting Healthy Eating and Physical Activity in a Family Mentor Experience Assignment
Meeshay Williams Wheeler, North Carolina

The purpose of the FCSfit KIDS project is to provide leadership and guidance to college students on age and developmentally appropriate ways to teach young children about healthy eating and physical activity.

Crockpots of Kindness
Nicole Graves, South Dakota

The purpose of the project will be to provide 18-20 food-insecure families with a crockpot complete with recipes and food budgeting tips/suggestions.

What's Next?

May 2018:  Spring grant application period opens.

  • Priority will be given to projects that are 1) creative, 2) innovative, and 3) collaborative.
  • The FCSfit Project Grant may be awarded to individuals or groups, though the project leader must be a current AAFCS member.
