The Shape Up SF Coalition is a multidisciplinary body convened to address the epidemic of chronic disease through primary prevention and environmental strategies, with an emphasis on physical activity and nutrition. We value Community, Collaboration, Health Equity & Prevention. Shape Up SF is committed to reducing health disparities in chronic diseases that disproportionately affect African American, Latino and Asian populations. Shape Up SF envisions an equitable, thriving community where all who live, work, learn and play in San Francisco enjoy optimal health.
Our mission is to advance health equity in San Francisco by collaborating with community on systems changes that increase nutrition security and active living. When considering the root causes of chronic disease, they are ultimately far more widespread than the “poor choices” of an individual. To that end, addressing chronic disease is more complicated and nuanced than simply asking people to eat their fruits and vegetables and start exercising 30 minutes a day. To ask people to make those “simple” changes, we must consider how their behaviors are shaped by their social, physical, and political environments.
In order to address health equity and upstream risk factors for chronic disease prevention and create systems that support healthy eating and active living, the Coalition focuses on:
- Increasing access to and consumption of healthy food
- Increasing opportunities for physical activity
- Increasing consumption of tap water
- Decreasing consumption of sugary drinks
To meet the above goals, the Coalition identified two overarching strategies:
- Build stakeholder capacity
- Develop and implement policies, systems and environmental strategies
To accomplish this work, we welcome partners, existing and new, to help us create environments that make it easy and fun to eat well and move more. Read about our 5-year strategic directions and how the Coalition operates.
