First Look at Fit and Food
Help support Fit and Food's mission!
The Fit and Food Connection offers people living in food and fitness deserts access to free nutritious food, physical activities, educational workshops, and personal coaching to encourage and support healthy living.
Building capacity to strengthen the health of our community- from the ground up!
Through 2026, we plan to work alongside neighborhood residents and other community partners to build our capacity and greatly expand our garden footprint. This growth means we'll be able to move our important work forward where it's needed most while prioritizing safety, sustainability, and community engagement.
the St.Louis community needs our help
Here's the Situation
- The community members we serve have little to no access whatsoever to healthy food options in their neighborhood markets.
- Wellness resources are also not available to encourage a healthy lifestyle in these underserved communities.
