The Issue: Obesity Prevention and Nutrition Education

Obesity prevention is a major concern in the Portola and Excelsior neighborhoods, inasmuch as children who live in low-income neighborhoods are at a greater risk for developing childhood obesity. Along with addressing the importance of healthy eating and physical activity, nutrition education for children can reduce their consumption of sugared drinks and provide them with fresh fruit and vegetables.

The Campaign: Supplying Nutritious Snacks at Children’s Programs

If 50 people donate $10 to this Grassroots campaign, then Portola & Excelsior Family Connections can provide a month’s worth of healthy snacks for all of its programs, including prekindergarten classes, child-and-parent drop-in therapy sessions, and other child-development and family-enrichment programs. Each additional $500 raised will be used to provide another month’s worth of healthy snacks.
