NUTRITION EDUCATION & OBESITY PREVENTION
CHAMPIONS FOR CHANGE
Nutrition Educcation & Obesity Prevention (NEOP) is a statewide outreach campaign that promotes fruits, vegetables, physical activity, healthy beverages, and changes in policies and environments that support those individual choices. As a USDA-funded program, we are eager to connect with other groups that serve low-income residents and encourage healthy places to live, work, learn, eat, shop, worship and play. We are sub contracted by the County of Riverside Department of Public Health, within the Nutrition Services and Health Promotion Branch.
We provide nutrition education and physical activity support for families and communities throughout Riverside County, at qualified locations. Our classes, special events, trainings and personalized technical assistance can guide organizations and individuals to make healthy choices easier!
