The Boys & Girls Club of Kern County has been awarded a $25,000 grant from Health Net, LLC to support the Cooking with Kids Nutrition Education Program at the Boys & Girls Club – Armstrong Youth Center. The nutrition education program strives to combat the excess weight and obesity issues affecting so many children in Bakersfield. The grant will support the “Triple Play and Healthy Habits” program, which focus on keeping the Club members physically active each day, increasing their consumption of fruits and vegetables, and increasing their knowledge of nutrition and food preparation skills. The grant was also used to upgrade the kids’ Teaching Kitchen. For more information, please visit www.bgclubsofkerncounty.org. Boys & Girls Club Members cut the ribbon on their new upgraded Teaching Kitchen made possible by a $25,000 grant from Health Net, LLC.
