FCCLA's Student Body Trunk-or-Treat Offers Healthy Alternatives to WES Students
Fruits & Healthy Snacks Promoted over Candy
Members of the Wahoo High School Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) caused a stir in the east parking lot of Wahoo Elementary School on Halloween when they offered a variety of healthy snack options to the young students.
Raisins, animal crackers, orange quarters, and pretzels were given out to each student. While not every student took every item, the goal of the program was to get the elementary students thinking about healthy options at Halloween as well as the other 364 days of the year.
The project is part of the Student Body project, organized by high school student Darian Coffey, which is a peer education program that focuses on helping young people learn to eat right, be fit, and make healthy decisions.
There are additional events planned in the month of November to expand the students’ knowledge about healthy habits.
FCCLA is a dynamic and effective national student organization that helps young men and women become leaders and address important personal, family, work and societal issues through Family and Consumer Sciences education.
Since its founding in 1945, the organization has involved more than 10 million youth and currently has more than 219,000 members and nearly 6,500 chapters.
If you would like more information about the events and programs in which FCCLA is involved this year, please contact the adviser Allison Kreifels at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A very special thanks goes out to Wahoo Super for donating the oranges for this event.
