The Issue: High Rate of Obesity in Alabama

Alabama was ranked the second most obese state in the country, and its obesity rate has doubled in the past 15 years to 32.3% of the adult population, according to a report by Trust for America’s Health. High rates of obesity contribute to other serious health problems including heart disease and diabetes.

The Campaign: Funding Healthy Chili Cook-Off Participation

If this Grassroots campaign raises $500, then Healthy Huntsville can sponsor participation in the Healthy Chili Cook-Off for 10 low-income families. Each additional $10 raised will go toward purchasing vegetables and fruit for the Healthy Kids Field Day and future Healthy Huntsville events. The Healthy Chili Cook-Off takes place Sunday, July 15, at Joe Davis Stadium and includes competition categories for meat-based chili, vegetarian chili, and a kids' cook-off for competitors younger than 18. The cook-off is designed to introduce the community to new methods of preparing healthful, delicious food.

You can follow the progress of this and other Grassroots campaigns at the Groupon Grassroots website.
