Communities will be able to achieve dynamic health and wellness, and children will be able to take maximum
advantage of the educational opportunities around them. This work will begin in Los Angeles, expand statewide, and eventually empower all communities.

Core Values:

Health

Every individual and community deserves the opportunity to lead a healthy,thriving existence.

Empowerment

Every individual and community should have the education, tools, and resources to make the best decisions impacting health and wellness.

Education

Every individual and community should have information and training around healthy living – especially students whose nutrition directly impacts their ability to learn.

Sense of Possibility

Many profit from the status quo. We know change will be difficult but we will strive to ensure all individuals and communities have access to healthy food and opportunities for advocacy.

Community

We will organize from those communities most affected by food deserts, and schools where students are not provided healthy food options, and work to hear from and amplify the voices of the members of our community.
