Promoting water wellness
To date, over 13,800 students and staff are able to drink water with ease!
In 2011, the Healthy Kids Collaborative formed a partnership with the Madison Water Utility and the Madison Metropolitan School District (MMSD) to ensure students and school staff had the ability to drink our city’s safe and tasty water. Water consumption is a proven obesity prevention strategy – we’re just making it easier and more fun to drink!
Through the generous support of the Madison Water Utility, each year we offer five MMSD elementary and one middle school the opportunity to win a water bottle filling station for their building. Applications for the program are available to MMSD schools in November.
