20 YEARS & COUNTING!
Since 1993, CANFIT has been at the heart of the movement to improve healthy eating and physical activity environments for adolescents in low income communities and communities of color. From grassroots to government, we work with community-based and youth-serving organizations to identify local solutions and support the development of culturally competent policy and practices.
At CANFIT, we meet people where they are. We understand youth culture and know how to bring healthy eating and physical activity into the lives of young people. We offer hands-on, culturally resonant technical assistance tailored to meet community needs.
