RE: Introducing Healthy Nutritional Alternatives in Palm Beach County Schools

Dear Dr. Johnson:

This proposal is for your review introducing healthy nutritional alternatives in Palm Beach County Schools. Drink Healthy, Corporation is in accordance with state and federal initiatives and the Florida Department of Education guidelines by providing and promoting healthy eating to your students and your athletes while advocating health awareness.

The progression towards a healthier student body is nutrition such as fruit drinks, vegetable drinks, and simple snacks. This partnered with physical education will lead to great success for students. Furthermore, eating healthy in school will lessen the obesity rate and stop students from feeling as sluggish. Students will be more energetic and have a higher success in academics, throughout the day. Dr. Johnson implementing Drink Healthy, Corporation's portable stands in your schools will not only achieve all this but also provide thirty percent of the profits to the schools.

By incorporating the best fruits and vegetables from our local markets, we are also helping our surrounding communities thrive. During athletic events and after school activities, jobs can be offered to students in teaching them not only the importance of being healthy but also the importance of acquiring and strengthening job skills and responsibilities associated with employment.

It would be a pleasure to assist the Palm Beach County School District in providing a healthy environment to its student body and faculty by providing healthy alternatives in the fight against obesity. Make a difference in your county through the nationwide initiative program to ensure kids eat healthier.

Thank you for the opportunity to present this proposal. I will be following up with you next week, by phone, to discuss any questions you may have.

Sincerely,
Heather Ronga
Chief Executive Officer
