Western Avenue Elementary
Western Ave. Elementary school is a low-income school district in Los Angeles where 100% of the students receive free school meals. For some children, that may be their only meal a day that isn’t junk food. That’s why it’s essential to teach these children the importance of what a balanced, healthy meal looks like and empower them to make healthy decisions at home.
Hillcrest Drive Elementary
The students at Hillcrest Elementary are also particularly vulnerable to obesity. At Hillcrest, 93.8% of the student population receives free or reduced-priced lunch, an indicator that they may not be exposed to the healthy food choices required to live healthy lives.
Queen Anne Place Elementary
At Queen Anne Elementary, all students participate in the free lunch program. Cooking With Gabby is working to provide access to knowledge about healthy cooking and different forms of exercise to the students there.
