YouthBuild receives grant from Walmart


Bananas and grapes and melons! Oh, my! YouthBuild participants will be eating healthier due to a $300 grant awarded from the Wal-Mart organization recently.

Dr. Vickey Leasure, YouthBuild instructor, wrote and received the Wal-Mart grant to promote better nutrition.

“I was seeing too many RedBull drinks consumed for breakfast,” said Leasure. “Now we can have yogurt shakes, corn and bean enchiladas and other foods the students choose as great-tasting and nutritional.”

Leasure said the nutritional boost is coming on more fronts than food items. Jeannie Bihl , Fayette County Health Department, visited the YouthBuild class to share sugar shocker facts and red flag foods we should avoid. Later, Sarah Sowell, Fayette Extension Office, will bring lots of samples and tips for making wiser food choices. Last year Sarah arranged a hummus cook-off; her simple yet great recipe won!

YouthBuild, a program under the supervision of Fayette County Community Action, is open to youth ages 18 to 24. There are still open spots for anyone interested. Join us for great opportunities and a banana shake!
