    What is CCROPP? The Central California Regional Obesity Prevention Program (CCROPP) is a program to help our communities’ live healthier lives. Some of our residents can’t easily buy healthy food, such as fresh fruits and vegetables. In addition, our neighborhoods are sometimes designed in ways that make physical activity unsafe or not convenient. This project is focused on changing our Central California environments to make it easier to eat healthy food and get regular physical activity.

  • EDUCATION
    EDUCATION
    Education is the cornerstone of individual and community success. The first five years of a childs life are a crucial stage of life in terms of a child's physical, intellectual, emotional and social development. Growth of mental and physical abilities progress at an amazing rate and a very high percentage of learning takes place from birth to age five. It is a time when children especially need high quality personal care and learning experiences. But with more than 1.2 million children dropping out each year, America faces an education crisis. The cost? More than $312 billion in lost wages, taxes and productivity over their lifetimes. These trends are reversible, but only when communities and public, private and nonprofit sectors work together.
