5-2-1-0 Sites Program

Applications for the 5-2-1-0 Sites Program are now open! Enrollment will run from Sept. 15 – Nov. 30, 2021. Click the link below to apply. The 5-2-1-0 Sites Program engages community partners to create, continue or expand upon their efforts to create environments that support healthy lifestyles. Modeled after the nationally acclaimed Let’s Go! program in Maine, this evidenced-based framework emphasizes four key messages for children’s health:

  • 5 or more servings of fruits and vegetables every day
  • 2 hours or less of recreational screen time every day
  • 1 hour or more of physical activity every day
  • 0 sugary drinks and more water every day

The Let’s Move Pittsburgh team is ready to hear about your specific needs and is trained to adapt and expand upon the 5-2-1-0 message to best support your wellness efforts.
