    Blue Zones Project is a community-wide well-being improvement initiative to help make healthy choices easier for everyone in Southwest Florida.  It consists of seven areas of a community: Worksites, Schools, Restaurants, Grocery Stores, Faith-Based, Other Organizations and Community Policy.  To learn more, visit https://southwestflorida.bluezonesproject.com

    Blue Zones Project Approved Schools

    The healthier we make our schools, the healthier our kids will be.

    Blue Zones Project makes it easy for schools to teach students how to lead longer, happier lives. Schools are already an essential part of helping kids make smart choices about staying healthy. By encouraging better eating habits, implementing tobacco-free policies, and increasing physical activity, schools can use Blue Zones Project to help students and parents form healthy habits for life.

    When the Blue Zones Project was first introduced to CCPS in 2015, we created videos and introduced the facts of this community project to all stakeholders.
