SHAPE California is a network of over 90 school districts working together to improve the health and academic success of California children. Working as a team, child nutrition staff, teachers, school administrators, family, and the community provide a consistent nutrition message in child nutrition programs, classrooms, and throughout the school environment.
The SHAPE newsletter provides SHAPE agencies with information, opportunities, and ideas to assist their ongoing development of healthier school environments. The bimonthly newsletter offers information about training and funding opportunities, initiatives, useful resources, research, and policies. In addition, it provides SHAPE agencies an opportunity to share best practices with others.
