CANFIT 20th Anniversary Assessment

On the Cusp of Adulthood…CANFIT Turns 20!

July 26th, 2013 marked CANFIT’s 20-year commitment to building healthier communities, developing culturally-relevant policies and practices, and working with policymakers and advocates to improve food and fitness environments in low-income and communities of color.

We invite you to share your favorite stories and inform the next phase of work by participating in our Assessment Survey!  The first 20 respondents of the survey will be entered into a raffle to receive a CANFIT gift bag valued at $200.

The survey may be accessed here:

Executive director, Arnell Hinkle, shares her thoughts in our latest blog post:

“Thinking back on the last 20 years has been an exciting and sobering experience.  There are so many memories and learnings and images that float before me.  We (CANFIT Board, staff and consultants) have been thinking about how best to commemorate this notable achievement in the life of a non-profit, and have decided to use the coming year to highlight our past achievements, engage with the communities that we serve to determine future strategies, and document what we have learned over the past 20 years.  Be on the lookout for monthly blog postings (on the 20th of each month) that do just that.

Over the next year, we will also be releasing new materials, hosting webinars, and inviting you to a series of House Parties that will be held around the country – a chance for our friends and partners to get together, have fun, and meet with leaders in the fields of nutrition, public health, food systems, physical activity, youth engagement, and social change….all the areas that CANFIT has been working in for 20 years.  We look forward to you joining us as we celebrate!”
