Food & Fitness supported nine diverse communities across the country to improve the health and quality of life of children and their families by creating equal access to affordable, healthy, locally grown food and safe and inviting places for physical activity and play.
Funding Partner: W.K. Kellogg Foundation
Engagement: 2006– 2008
“ALBD was instrumental in teaching our community how to convene and focus groups around a common interest and how to understand and use the built environment to increase physical activity opportunities. As a result, the Philadelphia Food and Fitness Alliance was able to establish shared use agreements with the faith community allowing children to play in a safe environment.”
