Children First/ Communities (CF/CIS) in Schools is a non-profit organization that provides food pantries financial assistance, clothing closets, afterschool care, and other programming for underserved families. The overall mission is to help these families, and to support children to stay and succeed in school. In 2014, CF received a grant from Mission Health to conduct the 5-2-1 Almost None childhood obesity prevention program in schools and afterschool centers. The purpose of this public service project was to provide technical and other support for evaluating the 5-2-1 Almost None program. Since February of 2015, we have been entering data from Children First learning centers as well as two elementary schools within Buncombe County, including information about number of children attending the learning centers, provision of healthy snacks, engaging children in physical activity, and involving parents and other family members in the program. The product associated with this project is a report on the program and how it met its goals. This report will help Children First/ Communities in Schools secure future funding for the 5-2-1 Almost None and other programs.
