Sweat a Little,

Give a Lot

Our goal is to dramatically improve the health landscape of San Diego and beyond. How we do so is through increased exercise and access to healthy food."

Connecting Hunger and Exercise

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

San Diego Hunger Coalition

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.
