ST. LOUIS, Mo. – Former President Bill Clinton is visiting St. Louis Wednesday touring projects that are part of the Clinton Foundation.
His first stop is Gateway Elementary School at 9:30 a.m., to see how one of his initiatives is improving the health and physical activity of students. Clinton will be looking at how the Alliance for a Healthier Generation is working with the school to improve students’ health through things like lead-free water fountains, healthy and hot meals, a new community garden, and exercise stations.
The Clinton Foundation and the American Heart Association are behind the Alliance for a Healthier Generation.
After the Gateway stop, Clinton will tour a metro bus that has been converted to a mobile market called a “metromarket” grocery store on wheels. That is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. at Good Life Growing on Evans Avenue in north city. The metromarket is a project connected with the Clinton Global Initiative.
Finally, Clinton will meet with underserved girls who are part of the Eureka! program, a project designed to provide increased science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education to underprivileged girls and young women in the U.S. and Canada. That event is taking place at Girls Inc. of St. Louis on Nelson Drive in north St. Louis at 4:30 p.m.
