Who We Are

The Community Activity and Nutrition Coalition (CAN-C) of Sonoma County is a group of individuals, professionals and community based organizations concerned about the nutritional health, activity level and well-being of the residents of our community. The group was formed in 1998.

Mission and Goals

The mission of CAN-C is to promote optimal nutritional and physical health for Sonoma County residents with an emphasis on children. The goals of CAN-C are carried out through sub-committees of the coalition and include:

  • Increasing public awareness of nutrition and physical activity issues and potential solutions.
  • Increasing opportunities for access to healthy foods and physical activity in all environments where children and adults live, work, learn and play.
  • Advocating for health-focused policies and practices in school and community environments and empowering community members to do the same.
  • Promoting proven effective practices for prevention and treatment of nutrition/inactivity-related health problems within local health care systems and ensuring their availability.
  • Building collaborative relationships with government and community groups that support CAN-C objectives.
