Our Work

Nutrition Educator Training Toolkit

The Nutrition Educator Training Toolkit is a free resource that provides instruction on how to conduct effective nutrition education and support healthy communities; it is not a nutrition curriculum. Each component of the Toolkit will help nutrition educators plan, deliver, and evaluate nutrition and food education sessions.

Healthy Body, Healthy Spirit

The Healthy Body, Healthy Spirit pilot project established an active wellness ministry with a trained health coordinator in five DC faith-based institutions that implemented nutrition and physical activity curriculum.

Active Kids, Healthy Community

ABCD has worked to offer children and adults safe, affordable places to play through dialogues, advocacy, and working groups encouraging shared use of school facilities.

Healthy Ties that Bind

ABCD has established well-connected multidisciplinary teams citywide and ward-wide to make referrals across disciplines and preventive and clinical services.
