Marin’s rate of overweight children is lower than the Bay Area and statewide averages, but is increasing (Marin HHS). We have to ACT now!
Thanks to our generous donors, KCL can continue our critical mission of inspiring kids to eat healthy for life, and expand our programming to reach more kids in the Bay Area.
We need your help to ensure our kids (including those from low income communities and those with special needs) make healthy food choices, which last a lifetime.
