Healthy Eating and Active Living


"Movement and healthy eating go hand in hand. Together they create a powerful force for good."

Communities flourish when they are filled with vibrant parks, active playgrounds, and stores offering affordable, nutritious food tailored to the needs of the community. A community should be a place where everyone can find affordable, nutritious food that caters to the community’s diverse needs, yet these conditions are not always available in low income communities.

We believe healthy food is a staple not just in homes, but also in schools, workplaces, and places of worship. This availability of healthy options keeps chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease at bay, while also nurturing social and emotional health, strengthening community bonds, and enhancing safety. 

We’re dedicated to transforming our neighborhoods by making fresh, local, and healthy food accessible and affordable and to revitalizing spaces that promote physical activities and fostering healthier lifestyles.

Making Affordable Fresh Food Accessible

Access to fresh, local food is key to nurturing the health and well-being of community members. We are dedicated to ensuring that the communities we assist can obtain high-quality food easily and affordably. No household in our communities should stress about securing their next meal and should have access to nutritious food. We prioritize making healthy food choices available to everyone.

Building more Spaces and Places for Active Living

Staying active coupled with eating high quality food are vital for reducing stress and enhancing overall health. Having spaces that promote physical activity and the opportunity to be active with others is essential to motivate movement and play. We are dedicated to funding organizations that create such spaces in the communities we support.

Encouraging more Healthy Behaviors in our Neighborhoods

Increasing opportunities that encourage healthy behaviors is key to improving overall well-being, and that's why we're dedicated to supporting organizations that promote these practices in our neighborhoods. This commitment involves supporting activities and programs that inspire people to make healthier choices every day.
