The Seneca-Babcock Community Association has received a grant of $18,500 from the General Mills Foundation to support the “Healthy Choices Healthy Kids” program. The program promotes healthy eating, physical activity, a positive outlook and awareness of good nutrition among youth.
The association is a nonprofit service agency located in southeast Buffalo and works with residents from disadvantaged economic, social and family circumstances in and around the Seneca-Babcock community. Its youth programs include sports and recreation, meal programs, art classes and help with school.
The grant is part of General Mills' Champions for Healthy Kids program, started in 2002 in partnership with the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation and the President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports.
