Youth Nutrition Program Extension
Santa Clara County has not been immune to the rising prevalence of childhood obesity, with nearly 33 percent of the County’s children overweight or obese. Launched in 2004, our Youth Nutrition Program works with schools to help kids adopt healthier eating habits and lifestyles that can significantly improve their lives.
In the face of statewide cuts to education spending and many families living on fixed incomes, the program fills an urgent need. Community support can enable its expansion into additional school sites in 2013.
