(Spirit Lake)-- The Bedell Family YMCA has been awarded a grant through a program that encourages kids to adopt healthy eating habits. The grant is through the Overcoming Barriers to Healthy Eating and Physical Activity standards.

The funds were used to purchase refrigeration and storage equipment for the Okoboji Y-Kids site, allowing the program to serve fresh fruits and vegetables for daily snacks.

Additional funds were used to purchase interactive and educational resources for winter indoor activities at the Spirit Lake and Milford Y-Kids sites. A small amount of funds was used for marketing materials.
