Eat, Move, Live

heartOur goal is a healthy community, but many of us struggle with access to healthy food and ways to stay fit and active.

United Way knows that a majority of Shawnee County residents are considered overweight or obese, and only 20% of adults get the recommended amount of physical activity.

final-now-logoIn addition to supporting opportunities for free physical fitness and nutrition education, we advocate for policy changes that allow all people to have healthier living options. We fight alongside like-minded groups to help at-risk neighborhoods build a brighter future, in part through our Neighborhood Opportunity for Wellness (NOW) initiative.




NOW is funded by a grant from the Kansas Health Foundation.
