Building Brighter Futures

Well Nourished, Brighter Futures Initiative: Ensuring Healthier Children through CA Statewide Collaboration


Childhood nutrition has far-reaching impacts. It affects a child’s ability to succeed in school and life as well as future health outcomes, such as the likelihood of developing a chronic disease. Yet many children in California experience inequitable access to nutrition education, nutritious foods, and supports for optimal nutrition, which puts them at a disadvantage. That is why we must work together, across disciplines, to leverage each other’s knowledge, experience, and creative thinking to identify, test, and effectively scale innovative solutions to ensure children are supported and have access to the nutritious foods they need for optimal nutrition. By advocating for children’s nutrition, we can positively impact the educational, health, and wellness outcomes for children and families in California, with a special focus on building nutrition equity for those who need it most.


We envision a future of nutrition equity, where each and every child has access to the healthy foods and supports necessary to reach their full potential for growth, health, and learning. 


Together, we pursue nutrition and child health equity through collaborative, multisector action and advocacy by passionate champions and diverse stakeholders.
