Funding to help fight obesity

The Delaware Community Foundation will present $25,000 in grants to nonprofit groups working towards reducing childhood obesity.

Groups receiving grants this year include the Delaware Adolescent Program ($7,100), Girl Scouts of Chesapeake Bay Council ($3,300), Girls, Inc of Delaware ($2,500), Girls on the Run ($5,000), and Sussex Child Health Promotion Coalition ($7,100).
