The Fridge is Open

Blogger's Note: Another fine program hosted by the Pottstown School District.

The Pottstown School District’s Wellness Council will offer the FRIDGE Program this spring.

FRIDGE stands for Food Related Intergenerational Discussion Group Experiences and was developed by educators with Penn State University.

The main focus of the program is to help families work together as a unit to increase their nutrition knowledge and family communication skills.

Families that participate will also learn to set family eating goals. Sessions will include games and activities designed for families to strengthen positive communication about food.

In addition each session will include dinner prepared by the participants.

The four-session series will begin on Wednesday, April 11, and conclude on Wednesday May 2.

The series is free to families in the Pottstown School District with children in the middle and high schools.

It will be held at Pottstown Middle School in Room 130 from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. At least one adult must accompany each child.

Families that participate will be eligible to receive a gift card and other incentives once they complete the series. Space is limited and pre-registration is required.

Contact Mandel Smith, Penn State Extension Educator in Montgomery County for registration information at or call 610-489-4315.
