Greenville County has one of the highest obesity rates in the nation with 66% of adults and 41% of youth being overweight or obese. It is difficult to maintain a healthy lifestyle when the surrounding environment does not promote healthy habits. Without providing adequate access to healthy eating and active living, the overall health of our community will continue to decline.
Hosted by the YMCA of Greenville as our legal and fiscal agent, LiveWell Greenville has become the primary vehicle through which partner organizations can successfully promote positive change. Our coalition supports schools, neighborhoods, businesses and other areas of our community through resources, collaboration and evaluation to promote healthy eating and active living.
LiveWell Greenville promotes healthy eating and active living through three areas of community support: resources, collaboration and evaluation.
LiveWell Greenville hosted our fourth annual Out of School Time Awards on October 20th, 2016, celebrating another year of progress and shining a light on many out-of-school time programs that are working to build policies and environments that promote child health.
We congratulate our participating care providers, who have all taken great strides to “make the healthy choice the easy choice” for the school-aged children they serve.
