Roosevelt Community Center Tops NRPA “Healthy Out-of-School Time” Grant Site Visits

The City of San José Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Services department (PRNS) received the “Healthy Out-of-School Time” grant from the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), implementing a nutrition literacy curriculum at 10 City-sponsored summer camps, with implementation continuing into eight City-sponsored after-school programs. The goal of this grant is to increase nutrition literacy amongst participants and staff, as well as to increase the number of meals and snacks being served in PRNS programs. Representatives from NRPA came to the City of San José on Tuesday, August 8, to visit some of the participating camps. During these site visits, NRPA conducted focus groups to gauge the effectiveness of the grant, spoke with staff regarding successes and challenges, and observed the curriculum’s implementation. The “Out-of-School Time” team received praise for their ability to implement the curriculum in such an effective way, which led to over 4300 additional meals/snacks being served to the campers. Additionally, Roosevelt Community Center’s camp staff received accolades as the best site NRPA visited all summer. For more information, please contact Neil Rufino, PRNS Deputy Director, at 408-535-3508.
