The Craig School District is one of seven recipients of the SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium Community Transformation grant program.

$95,000 will be split among the Southeast Alaska community groups for programs that focus on improving health.

The Craig School District will use its grant to help develop school nutrition curriculum around fruits and vegetables, while strengthening the school garden.

Other recipients were the Alaska Breastfeeding Coalition in Juneau; the Takshanuk Watershed Council in Haines; Petersburg Mental Health Services; Sitka Local Foods Network; Brave Heart Volunteers in Sitka; and the Wrangell School District’s planned nutrition program.

The next round of grant applications will be announced sometime next summer.
