About Us

The Obesity Prevention Foundation was established to provide communities with leadership and educational resources to combat the epidemic of childhood obesity. Begun in northern Nevada in 2005, the Foundation focuses on two main areas:

Sunflower First, direct interventions with educational programs, cooking and nutrition classes, fitness and wellness demonstrations for schools, classrooms, youth groups, churches and family organizations.

Second, the foundation serves to develop strategy and craft policy solutions for communities and legislatures to combat childhood obesity at the society level.
