North Carolinians suffer from excessively high rates of obesity and diet-related diseases. Currently, one in three children in North Carolina is overweight or at risk of becoming overweight; and among adults, that rate increases to two out of every three. To address this critical issue, we aim to create a North Carolina where all people have access to safe, inviting places to play and be active, as well as access to healthy, local food.
