Lisa Gable, President, Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation
At the 2015 Clinton Global Initiative Annual Meeting, Lisa led the charge behind the Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation's renewed commitment to reach 10% of pre-K children living in poverty with a nutrition and physical activity curriculum. To date, HWCF has awarded 23 Head Start programs grants to teach nutrition and support physical activity. Thanks to these curriculum and training grants, valued at $1,000 each, 18,000 at-risk children ages 3–5 will learn about the importance of a healthy diet and physical activity at school. Each winner will receive 25 printed copies of the Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation's Pre-K curriculum (created by Discovery Education, the leading provider of digital content and professional development for K-12 classrooms), and a set of story books aligned with the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children.
