Food and Fitness Partner Network
Created by the Chicago Public Schools Office of Student Health & Wellness (OSHW) with support from CLOCC, the Food and Fitness Partner Network (FFPN) has been convened for two academic years.
Partner organizations have been vetted and reviewed by the CPS Materials Review Committee to provide a wide range of healthy eating, physical activity and wellness activities, and services to schools. CLOCC hosts quarterly FFPN meetings to build the capacity of each partner organization to provide wellness support
through trainings and breakout discussions.
- The +Network is a group of Food and Fitness Partners that provide schools with Healthy CPS support in addition to a wide range of healthy eating, physical activity and other wellness activities and programs.
- Organizations have all been vetted and their programs reviewed and approved by the Chicago Public Schools (CPS) Office of Student Health and Wellness (OSHW) Materials Review Committee.
- +Network partners support school wellness teams by having an in-depth knowledge of Healthy CPS, having the ability to refer schools to a wide-variety of resources, and providing support that creates an environmental change and that can be sustained by the school in the absence of external partners.
- +Network partners work with schools to identify unmet criteria through the Healthy CPS Checklist, assist schools with creating an action plan to comply with unmet criteria, and ensure schools complete the end of the year Healthy CPS Survey.
