Thad Sturgeon of Camp Run Farm, Fombell, Pa., visited the Barack Obama Academy of International Studies on Tuesday with Pittsburgh Steeler and dairy advocate Najee Harris and GENYOUth CEO Ann Marie Krautheim to help present a Fuel Up to Play 60 Hometown Grant to the school.
The $10,000 Hometown Grant was provided by the Pittsburgh Steelers, ADA North East’s Fuel Up to Play 60 partner. Our nutrition specialists helped identify the school because of their active participation in the program, and the event was held in September because it is Hunger Action Month.
“As a dairy farmer, I can’t imagine my kids not having access to food every day, which is why I believe so strongly in the work GENYOUth is doing through the Fuel Up to Play 60 program,” said Sturgeon. “Making sure kids have milk and dairy foods in school meals is critical to their success and I’m proud to play a role by providing such a nutritious product.”
