The Los Angeles Collaborative for Healthy, Active Children was formed in February 18, 2003 to address the epidemic of overweight and unfit children and their families in Los Angeles County by putting into action recommendations of The Los Angeles County Physical Fitness and Nutrition Task Force Paving the Way for Physically Fit and Healthy Children Findings and Recommendations Report, August 2002. . With leadership from the Los Angeles County Children’s Power—Play! Community Coalition, Los Angeles Region Project LEAN (Leaders Encouraging Activity and Nutrition) Coalition and support from the Network for a Healthy California – California Department of Public Health, the collaborative is made up of over 100 stakeholders including school districts, Head Start providers, health care providers, community-based organizations, DPH Programs, Department of Parks and Recreation and faith-based organizations, the American Heart Association, American Diabetes Association, American Cancer Society, Dairy Council of California and California Food Policy Advocates. By sharing their resources, expertise and influence, members are expanding the reach of their individual programs and addressing crucial nutrition and physical activity health issues and disparities in the County.

This material was produced by the California Department of Public Health’s Network for a Healthy California with funding from USDA SNAP, known in California as CalFresh (formerly Food Stamps). These institutions are equal opportunity providers and employers. CalFresh provides assistance to low-income households and can help buy nutritious foods for better health.
