Through ADA North East’s with Fuel Up to Play 60 partnership with the National Football League, five of our partner players posted social media messages offering support to school food service staff. They include: Baltimore Ravens’ Sam Koch, Pittsburgh Steelers’ Cameron Heyward, New York Jets’ Kelvin Beachum, Buffalo Bills’ Harrison Phillips, and New York Giants’ Dalvin Tomlinson.
Fuel Up to Play 60 is the youth wellness program in schools that encourages students to eat a healthy diet that includes dairy, while getting at least 60 minutes of physical activity each day. ADA North East utilizes this partnership in its school breakfast efforts to make milk and dairy products available to students.
