*MTCC Summer VISTA- Get Fit Great Falls
GetFit Great Falls, Inc. is located in Great Falls, Montana. GetFit Great Falls promotes the benefits of healthy lifestyles to the citizens of Great Falls and Cascade County through a unified community effort that encourages cultural and system change. Under the supervision of the City Park and Rec staff, the Summer Associates (Park Pals) will develop activities that require inexpensive or no equipment and art and science programs. The Park Pals will coordinate with the school district’s food truck and a program that gives books to kids in parks throughout the summer. There is growing science connecting poverty and health. By giving economically disadvantaged youth free healthy meals, the Park Pals program is addressing an immediate need of providing them food they otherwise couldn't afford, and providing nutrition and building healthy habits that will benefit them in school and help them grow into healthy adults. Eating good food is the most basic thing we can do to lay the foundation for good health, and academic, social and financial success.
