FFI - Food & Fitness Initiative

West Central students are part of the Northeast Iowa Food & Fitness Initiative, also known as FFI.

The Northeast Iowa Food & Fitness Initiative has brought people in Allamakee, Chickasaw, Clayton, Fayette, Howard and Winneshiek counties together to make our region a place where every day, all people have access to healthy, locally grown foods and abundant opportunities for physical activity in the places where we live, learn, work and play.

Diverse groups have joined together to create a common vision. Regional learning communities, involving schools, youth, active living and community health, nurture quality relationships and policy change successes.

Youth engagement is key to our success. Eighteen high school-based Food & Fitness Teams actively work with their administrators, food service, wellness committees, and teachers to improve their school's food and fitness environment and policies.
