The Children’s Healing Institute recently received a $3,000 grant from Ronald McDonald House Charities of South Florida, which will support the Small Steps to Good Health project.
The project will provide nutritional education workshops for vulnerable families with small children. Its goal is to educate mothers on the benefits of healthful eating for themselves and their children, and to decrease the risk of child obesity through the creation of healthy menus for families on a budget.
“We are so excited to be able to partner with Ronald McDonald House Charities of South Florida on this project,” said Dr. Sandy Munoz, CEO of the Children’s Healing Institute.
“The Children’s Healing Institute is doing important work,” said Jason Cornet, McDonald’s owner-operator who initiated the RMHC grant request.
