PUFFA 2011

These PSAs were produced during a six-week internship by youth from the Philadelphia Urban Food and Fitness Alliance, or PUFFA. The PUFFA Youth combined everything they had learned in four-weeks of nutrition and healthy living education, to create short, engaging videos that would connect with their peers, explaining the importance of adopting a healthy lifestyle. These videos will play on LCD monitors in school cafeterias all throughout the city for the 2011-2012 school year.


These videos were made in partnership between PUFFA, WHYY's Dorrance H. Hamilton Public Media Commons, The Enterprise Center CDC, and Southeast Philadelphia Collaborative, with funding from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
