The purpose of this project was to develop a childhood obesity prevention/reduction program for elementary school children and their families, identify potential funding sources, and to complete a grant application to fund and implement the program at an elementary school. The proposed school-wide program consists of 3 components: (1) student nutrition education, (2) student physical education and activity, and (3) parent education. In addition, support services will be offered to children who are overweight or obese by the school social worker. The proposed program incorporated evidence-based approaches to increase the likelihood of obtaining funding and achieving its goals. A search for potential funding sources resulted in the selection of The California Endowment as the best funding source for this program. The actual submission/funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of this project. Implications for social work practice are discussed.
