1 C CAP Program Overview Fuel Up to Play 60 (FUTP 60) is a unique in school program that encourages the availability and consumption of nutrient rich foods, along with at least 60 minutes of daily physical activity. The program was founded by National Dairy Council (NDC) and the National Football League (NFL), in collaboration with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), and is based on a mutual commitment to the health of the next generation. Because FUTP 60 aims at long term, sustainable change, it requires ongoing support and participation at the grassroots level. Careers through Culinary Arts Program (C CAP) works with public schools across the country to prepare underserved high school students for college and career opportunities in the restaurant and hospitality industry. C CAP Arizona is part of this national program supporting culinary arts classes across the state. Dairy Council of Arizona (DCAZ) is helping to further FUTP 60 goals in local schools by offering funding for C CAP teachers and the opportunity for a senior culinary student to win a scholarship: For C CAP teachers: up to $1,000 to purchase nutrient rich foods for in class culinary activities and costs associated with FUTP 60/C CAP Scholarship Program. For Culinary students: Grand Prize of $5,000 scholarship to an Arizona culinary school awarded to a senior culinary student. Second and third place prizes will also be awarded. Students become eligible for prizes in one of two ways: Develop healthy recipes for kids to be included in a FUTP 60 Recipe Book that will be distributed to kids at FUTP 60 events. Serve as a mentor to younger children in elementary or junior high school to educate children about the benefits of healthy eating and instruct them on how to improve their eating habits using the FUTP 60 Program.

2 Background Today, child nutrition is more challenging than ever with epidemic rates of childhood overweight and obesity and the pervasive problem of nutrient deficiencies and sedentary behaviors in youth, which contribute to harmful effects in states of health as well as growth, development and cognition. Many health professional organizations and government agencies identify the school environment as critical for addressing this urgent issue. Meals and snacks consumed at school provide 35to 50 percent of a student s daily nutrition needs, and schools provide the ideal setting for teaching children and teens to adopt healthy eating and physical activity behaviors. Developed by National Dairy Council and National Football League (NFL), in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Fuel Up to Play 60 engages and rewards students for making a difference in their school environment and for their own health. Students and schools work together to increase sustainable access to nutrient rich foods and physical activity in schools and create longlasting behavior changes in youth. More than 70,000 schools in the U.S. are currently enrolled in FUTP 60. Dairy Council of Arizona (DCAZ) brings these national powerhouses to the local level and support C CAP teachers and students who assist schools in Arizona with implementing Fuel Up to Play 60 during the school year. The objective of this collaboration is to draw on the expertise of C CAP teachers and students and the established and successful in school FUTP 60 program by partnering C CAP teachers and students with interested FUTP 60 schools with the shared vision of empowering students to eat healthy, moving Arizona one step closer to solving the problem of childhood obesity. Program Details The FUTP 60/C CAP Scholarship Program is designed to benefit both C CAP teachers and students, along with benefitting an elementary or junior high school chosen to implement the program. The C CAP students will either develop recipes or provide guidance and education for younger school children. Benefits of participating in the program include: Teacher benefits: Funding for nutrient rich food products to use in classroom culinary activities Helps to meet AZ CTE Culinary Arts Standards Leadership opportunities for your students Help your students win a scholarship to an AZ culinary school Student benefits: Develop leadership skills Resume enhancing activities Be a role model for younger children Use your skills and education to help kids learn about healthy eating Opportunity to win a $5000 scholarship to an Arizona culinary school Page 2 of 6
