Project Category

Status
Ongoing

ActiveSGV is working in partnership with the Los Angeles Department of Public Health to provide nutrition education, produce access and physical activity classes to the San Gabriel Valley and East Los Angeles communities through a variety of programing. 

Through the partnership with Pasadena Unified School District, Active SGV’s team provides bilingual direct nutrition education to PUSD students and their parents, as well as through the district’s monthly Produce Distribution services. Our team also provides bilingual (English/Spanish) nutrition education and physical activity programing in the San Gabriel Valley and East Los Angeles at local parks, gardens and community centers.

Our goal is to serve as a resource for our community to access fresh produce, education and physical activity and ultimately lead to greater access to healthy living. For more information and resources on Cal Fresh, click HERE.

For questions on the CalFresh project please email Diane Velez, diane@activesgv.org or call (626) 415-8406.
