Former U.S. President Bill Clinton toured of some of the facilities associated with the Clinton Foundation in St. Louis Wednesday.
President Clinton was set to tour three separate sites involved with the Clinton Foundation and Clinton Global Initiative, including childhood education, STEM education, and local farming programs.
President Clinton began the day with a tour of a St. Louis school to see "examples of how the Alliance for a Healthier Generation is improving the health and physical activity of local students," a press release said. Involved in the criteria for assisting students are community gardens, exercise stations, and healthy, hot meal options.
Next, President Clinton visited a donated city bus that has since been transformed into a mobile grocery store, meant to provide the areas of the city in food deserts with fresh and healthy food.
President Clinton is scheduled to arrive at his last stop, the Girls, Inc. Eureka! Program, at around 4:30. Girls, Inc. Eureka! is an initiative that provides increased science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education to women and young girls in low-income neighborhoods. The effort, which has settled into many cities across the country, aims to enable and empower the women for a successful future while living financially sound, productive lives.
President Clinton visited Baltimore, Maryland, on Monday and northeast Florida Tuesday.
