95210: The Whole Picture of Health Partners
Project FOOD Now is reaching out to African American children residing in low income neighborhoods on the South and North sides of Tallahassee with a pilot nutrition and physical activity education curriculum and the 95210 message.
CORE's piece of the Whole Picture of Health is to identify low income families in Leon County that need support, education, accountability, and training in leading a healthier lifestyle. By providing the opportunity for life coaching, in home pantry makeovers, personal training sessions for kids, group exercise sessions throughout the community, monthly parent/family support groups, and snack/meal demonstrations, we hope to motivate individuals and encourage families to make healthy lifestyle choices. Contact CORE at email@example.com.
CORE Lifestyle and Project FOOD Now are partnering to develop mini physical activity workshop sessions for parents, information meetings for low income parents, and to provide physical activities at community events.
Tallahassee Food Gardens, the Man in Overalls, is partnering with two low-income communities to aid them in launching pre-planned community gardens and is also partnering with ten low-income families to start gardens at their homes in exchange for the families weighing, recording and reporting their harvests, so we can determine just how much beginning gardeners can grow in small spaces.

Whole Child Leon's Healthy Recipe
Thanks to Publix Aprons Cooking School, Whole Child Leon has its own healthy and easy recipe.
95210: The Whole Picture of Health is a health and wellness initiative of the leadership team for Tallahassee ACHIEVE efforts. This team, referred to as the Community Health Action and Response Team (or CHART), provides access and opportunities to strengthen community networks focused on developing and implementing policy, systems and environmental change strategies.
It is strong collaboration, coupled with community ownership, that has driven 95210: The Whole Picture of Health (95210:TWPH) to its status now as a community‐wide effort to improve health and influence policy change that began in our childcare centers. The simple messaging of 95210:TWPH is intended to promote behavioral and policy change around sleep, nutrition, physical activity, recreational screen time and tobacco.
95210:TWPH has since evolved into the backbone for Tallahassee's comprehensive efforts to change health‐related policy and environmental factors in our schools, work-sites, hospitals, and the community‐at‐large.
In December 2011, Courtney Atkins, Executive Director of Whole Child Leon, was awarded the Joseph W. Cullen Award from the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors. (Pictured - NACDD Chief Executive Officer, John Robitscher and Courtney Atkins, Executive Director, WCL)
