The Tennessee Department of Health released the list of Diabetes Initiative Awards today. The City of Manchester was awarded two grants for a total of $480,000.
The first grant is for $450,000 over three years and it will fund the renovation of the old Riverview Alternative school site. The renovation will include the construction of a small park and using the school building for a year round farmers market, with a greenhouse, and a summer feeding program site. The second grant will fund the formation of a free outdoor adventure club for youth in grades 5-9 and implementing a choice of healthier concession snacks and foods at school athletic events. This project is for a two year period. The City of Manchester is very appreciative of the funding from the Tennessee Department of Health and their support in improving the health of all Tennesseans.
