CAST is a five-year project that seeks to improve child health in the Bethel School District. The project includes seven elementary schools with an enrollment of nearly 3,000 students. CAST is a unique community-based participatory program in that it brings together schools, local organizations, and families to assess and respond to children’s health and nutrition needs at both a school and community level.
Through the formation of a community-school partnership, organizers hope to improve Bethel policies, resources, and infrastructure, contributing to increased opportunities for physical activity and access to affordable, healthy foods in Bethel neighborhoods.
All Bethel-area families with elementary age children are invited to participate in the project.
