Odyssey After School Enrichment Program is Establishing the 3E's

The Staff at Odyssey After School Enrichment Program
Odyssey After School Enrichment Program enlists wide-ranging support to teach young school children about good nutrition and healthy lifestyles. In addition to backing from community organizations such as the Rotary Club and Master Gardeners club, Odyssey has utilized grant funds from the Establishing the 3E's Grant Program (Establish3E) to develop a vibrant garden, a cooking program and a robust exercise program. Odyssey received a $7,500 Establish3E grant through the Texas Department of Agriculture to obtain a bronze level Healthier Child and Adult Care Food Program Recognition Award.

The Establishing the 3E’s program incentivizes the creation of new nutrition education programs in any child care institution or community organization. The objective of the program is to increase awareness of the importance of good nutrition, especially for children, and to encourage children's health and well-being through the 3E's of Healthy Living — Education, Exercise and Eating Right!
