SUMMER EDITION 2015
As we enter our 22nd year of working to improve the food and physical activity environment in low-income communities across the country, CANFIT is seeking your support to help us expand our consulting, training and technical assistance services. Donors like you enable us to serve those in most need.
Your contributions help us fund academic scholarships; develop a food and fitness career pipeline for non-college track youth; serve as a "Community Food Coach" (TM) for communities trying to increase availability of and access to healthy food and places to be active; and share our expertise and strategies through materials, presentations, and meeting participation. In honor of our 22nd birthday, please donate now.
We truly appreciate your support!
