New Jersey Partnership for Healthy Kids (NJPHK) is a statewide program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) whose primary goal is to convene, connect and empower community partnerships across the state to implement environment and policy changing strategies that prevent childhood obesity. Community coalitions in Trenton, Camden, Newark, New Brunswick, and Vineland are leading these efforts.
Building a Culture of Health in New Jersey means creating changes that will surround kids and families in every community with opportunities to make healthy choices. Join us for the annual conference on December 2, 2015 at Pines Manor in Edison, NJ from 8:45 am - 3:45 pm.
In Trenton, NJPHK is led by Isles Inc. and the YMCA of Trenton. This month we spotlight our partner by taking a look at its growth and support of Trenton’s community gardens.
The start of the school year means early mornings, busy schedules and a calendar full of activities and assignments. With so much going on, it is important to ensure that kids have proper nourishment to help keep their minds and bodies focused and energized throughout the year.
