Low-income California families face rising rates of obesity, sedentary lifestyles, food insecurity, and hunger that may contribute to preventable health problems. The Nutrition Education and Obesity Prevention Branch (NEOPB) brings organizations together to address areas where goals, objectives, and activities intersect. NEOPB is committed to nurturing partnerships as the cornerstone of its work to initiate, encourage and support policy, systems, and environmental changes that will lead to decreasing and potentially preventing, obesity and chronic disease.

County Nutrition Action Partnerships (CNAPs) (PDF)
In nearly every California county, CNAPs are brining together a diverse collection of individuals, organizations, community leaders, decision makers, policymakers and health experts to reshape the health of their community and to make the healthy choice the easy choice. NEOPB staff provide training and technical assistance to support the local efforts of CNAPs statewide.
