Healthy Living Collaboration
Growing Healthy Minds and Bodies

HLC LogoThe mission of the Healthy Living Collaboration is to improve overall health and increase food security for School District of Lee County students and families. We promote healthy minds and bodies by linking multisensory, cross-curricular academics with school gardens, cafeteria menus, nutrition classes, mental health education, industry certification, college & career readiness and community outreach.
