AQUILA once again had the opportunity to attend The Junior League of Austin’s Fall FIT Pep Rally at Baty Elementary School. We are proud to continue our support of and involvement with the Food in Tummies (FIT) Program. The FIT Pep Rallies encourage students to develop healthy eating habits through engaging and interactive educational performances.
Ninety-six percent of the Del Valle ISD student population live below the poverty line and qualify for the National School Lunch Program. Each weekend, the FIT Program provides weekend nourishment to these children at Hillcrest Elementary and Baty Elementary, by sending them home with backpacks full of food and healthy recipe cards. The FIT program feeds nearly 1,600 children each weekend.
