IAPOH Policy & Legislative Initiatives
Healthy Local Food Incentives Fund
A $500,000 state investment to support SNAP match programs at Illinois farmers markets.
IAPOH supports ensuring all Illinois schools are hunger free, and our kids can all grow, learn and thrive. Public Act 103-0532 creates free school meals for all children, and now we’re advocating that the Illinois General Assembly funds this critical program.
Enhanced Physical Education
Strong Academics. Healthy Habits. Enhanced Social-Emotional Skills. These are the keys to success for our students, both inside and outside of the classroom. They are the tools we strive to give our children every day. They are the foundation for a successful future. And they can all be fostered in one class — physical education.
