Our Focus: Health

Hunger doesn’t take the summer off

More than 262,000 Dallas County kids – a population that could fill AT&T Stadium three times – are at risk of going hungry during the summer. Watch how the Dallas Summer & Supper Council is working to change that.

Why Health?

Healthy Zone School Recognition Program

The Healthy Zone School Recognition Program® recognizes and rewards schools for their healthy practices and gives schools resources to engage teachers, students, parents, and the broader community in a joint effort to create a culture of health.

Healthy Living

With programs that teach healthy behaviors to both children and adults, United Way works to prevent obesity, addiction and common health issues that put a strain on our community’s health resources.
