In 2011, Greg Scott saw that while our C3's Kid's Meals was helping daily to provide nutrition for the children enrolled in our Partner After School programs, little was really being done to educate the children about portion control, positive food choices and overall wellness. He pushed to implement C3's W.I.N. Program (wellness, inspiration and nutrition).
The mission of the W.I.N. Program is to inspire, educate and promote healthy food choices, exercise and an overall wellness in children. Using C3's Kid's Meals as a vehicle, Cover 3 educates the children receiving free meals while administering healthy choice food.
The W.I.N. Curriculum was established by Cover 3 staff and Board Members in partnership with certified nutritionists and physical education teachers. You can find the W.I.N. Curriculum in all of our C3's Kid's Meals sites by beginning of the 2012-13 school year.

Bigger is not always better when talking about food.
