     Youth Lunch Program

    This website includes information about the program, resources and ideas for how to use 5210 Numbers to Live By in your community. For more information, contact ynp@pamf.org.

    The program began in 2004 as the Palo Alto Medical Foundation's Youth Nutrition Program funded by a three year grant from Applied Materials.

    In 2010, Palo Alto Medical Foundation and El Camino Hospital came together and redesigned the program as 5210 Numbers to Live By, originally delivering the program in select elementary schools in Mountain View, Sunnyvale, Campbell and Santa Clara.

    Today the program reaches over 8000 children and their families each year in a variety of settings including preschools, elementary schools, a high school, day care centers and the community.
