Did you know that 31% of California school aged children are obese and
chronic heart disease, stroke, and diabetes are respectively the #1, #2, and #6 cause of death in LA County?
This, is, sadly true.
But, luckily, one of Long Beach's newest nonprofits, SugarWatch
celebrated their soft launch just last week at Beach Streets in Long Beach, California
bringing awareness to harsh realities such as these ones.
SugarWatch's mission is to provide opportunities and education for individuals and communities to make choices
that improve their quality of life through greater nutrition and healthier living.

Also, enjoy some time capsules from their soft launch
as they provided locally sourced fruits and vegetables to community members.
