LOS ANGELES, Sept. 29, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Los Angeles Rams and Dairy Council of California continued their rich history of supporting local communities Wednesday by presenting the Culver City School District with a $10,000 Fuel Up to Play 60 Hometown Grant on World School Milk Day on September 28, 2022.

|The grant will be shared among schools in the district to support healthy eating and physical activity wellness programs for students.||“It is so exciting to see the Rams be so supportive of the Los Angeles communities since their return to Southern California. Even more exciting is that the Culver City Unified School District will leverage this community investment across all schools in the district,” said Tammy Anderson-Wise, CEO, Dairy Council of California. “By supporting California school districts through increased access to healthy foods, such as milk and dairy products, and nutrition education about sustainable healthy eating patterns, it will make a difference in many lives for years to come. “|
|This grant was awarded to the Culver City Unified School District after the Dairy Council of California’s Mobile Dairy Classroom assembly celebrated World School Milk Day at Farragut Elementary with over 500 students. The original farm-to-school program, the free Mobile Dairy Classroom collection originated in Southern California in the 1930s and teaches students in a unique way where their food comes from—by bringing a real cow to students. Mobile Dairy Classroom Program Director and Southern California native Efrain Valenzuela says, “Our free, interactive assembly is always a hit with students, many of whom have never seen a cow in person. It’s incredibly rewarding to teach kids about where their food comes from. Growing up in Los Angeles, I can relate to so many of the students we interact with each school year.”||“We appreciate the continued partnership with America’s Dairy Farmers to support Los Angeles schools and the students they serve,” said David Weingarten, Manager, Rams Community Affairs and Engagement. “We hope this year’s grant will provide greater opportunities for students to learn about nutrition and healthy eating habits to build a foundation for a life of good health.”|
|While students and staff at Farragut Elementary were excited about the Mobile Dairy Classroom and the Fuel Up to Play 60 Hometown Grant presentation featuring the Rams Cheerleaders and mascot Rampage, Anderson-Wise spoke about how the Rams’ commitment to supporting healthier generations aligns with the Dairy Council of the California case.||“The Dairy Council of California aims to enhance the health of children and families in California through the pursuit of lifelong healthy eating habits,” she said. “The Rams don’t just talk the talk, they walk the walk. $10,000 can make a meaningful difference in improving the health of children and families in the Culver City Unified School District. I commend them for this important work and partnering with us on World School Milk Day .”|
