A primary focus of St. David’s Foundation is reducing risk factors for chronic disease. Consequently, we are strongly committed to reducing the rates of overweight and obesity in children. The Foundation awards grants to organizations that promote healthier eating, physical activity and exercise and improve access to affordable, nutritious food for low-income families in Central Texas.
St. David’s Foundation’s Healthy Living focus area is interested in initiatives that:
- Promote healthy living practices and obesity prevention among the Central Texas community.
- Provide community or clinic-based treatment strategies for overweight and obesity.
- Promote policy and environmental changes to improve access to affordable, nutritious foods and opportunities for physical activity.
