Kellogg Foundation launches new national initiative

The W.K. Kellogg Foundation announced today $4.5 million in grants to nine projects nationwide that will participate in an effort to help communities embrace active living and healthy eating. Each community group will receive a two-year, $500,000 grant to create a community action plan that maps out ways the community can support healthy children, help youth and families have access to local healthy food, and provide safe spaces and structures for physical activity and play.
The projects receiving funding are:

- Boston, Massachusetts
- Detroit, Michigan
- Holyoke, Massachusetts
- New York City, New York
- Northeast Iowa
- Oakland, California
- Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
- King County, Seattle, Washington
- Tohono O’odham - Sells, Arizona
 The Kellogg Foundation has earmarked $18 million for this initiative.
