Connecting Hunger and Exercise
1 in 5 Children in San Diego do not have access to enough food for an active, healthy lifestyle.

But What Does This Mean?
For over 100,000 children in San Diego County whose families have limited income, accessing healthy food can be a daily challenge.
Tens of thousands of San Diegans don't have access to a grocery store in their neighborhood that sells fresh produce
For working families, many healthful ingredients can be too time consuming, resource restrictive, or challenging to prepare
Inexpensive, quick-to-prepare foods are often the only choice to put calories on the table
The impacts of food insecurity on physical health, mental well-being, and student behavior are deep and long-lasting.
To truly create a healthful ecosystem for all, we needed to start with reliable access to simple-to-prepare, healthful foods.
