WHY IT MATTERS
Childhood obesity rates have more than doubled in children and quadrupled in adolescents in the past 30 years. Obese youth are at risk for a multitude of physical and mental health issues such as cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, low self-esteem, and social problems. Project Teen Health (PTH) of Community Action Partnership provides a comprehensive childhood obesity prevention program aiming to educate, promote, and inspire a lifetime of wellness. PTH provides teens education on how to create healthy and culturally relevant meals that not only taste great, but are low-cost. PTH participants become health ambassadors educating their family, peers and elementary students about health and nutrition. Your redemption purchases and provides fresh fruit and vegetables for nutrition workshops and cooking demonstrations.
