Wellness in the Schools (WITS) is a non-profit organization dedicated to combating childhood obesity by bringing healthy food and fitness programming to public schools. WITS currently serves children in 60 schools across three states (New York, Florida, Kentucky), and is poised for continued national growth. The WITS mission is to inspire healthy eating, environmental awareness, and fitness as a way of life for public school students. WITS is able to achieve their mission goals through an innovative program model, which incorporates our programs as integrated parts of students' daily school experience.
Through meaningful public/private partnerships with school leadership, teachers, chefs, coaches, parents and kids, WITS has developed Cook for Kids and Coach for Kids, complementary programs that help schools develop a culture of health and wellness.
With Bella Italia's donation of 34 cartons of Bella Italia premium bulk pasta, WITS can serve disadvantaged students at little to no cost to their parents or schools.
