ABOUT US: WE ARE GOOD-FOOD FIGHTERS.
Bahram Akradi founded The Life Time Foundation more than a decade ago. He believed that school food should feed children’s brains and bodies. Ever since, the Life Time Foundation has been dedicated to helping children live healthy, happy lives.
How do we do this? We partner with school districts to provide financial support in the form of grants that are customized for every school. Each grant is unique to fit the needs of each district for capital equipment, education and marketing to help schools eliminate highly processed, unhealthy foods from school meals – what we call the Harmful 7 :
- Trans Fats & Hydrogenated Oils
- High-Fructose Corn Syrup
- Hormones & Antibiotics
- Processed & Artificial Sweeteners
- Artificial Colors & Flavors
- Artificial Preservatives
- Bleached Flour
We also offer nutrition staff and administrators with the tools and training they need to make the transition as seamless as possible. Plus, we educate kids through our Nutrition Literacy & Movement Lessons.
Life Time Foundation is continually working to develop sustainable approaches to accelerate healthy change in school food. We have given grants to 544 schools, serving 310,000 children and 44 million meals.
