County Nutrition Action Partnership

Vision:  We envision a county where access to healthy choices is a right.

Mission:  To make healthy choices accessible and affordable to all through collaborative partnerships.

The San Bernardino County Nutrition Action Partnership (CNAP) coordinates collaborative efforts and fosters partnerships among community organizations in order to empower and enable residents to have access to and choose healthy foods/beverages and increase physical activity. This is accomplished through enhancing communication among organizations, education, advocacy, environmental supports, coordination, and collaboration.

Member-Directed Priorities

  • Promote the USDA Summer Meal Program to increase participation, add summer meal sites, incorporate nutrition education, physical activity, and other obesity prevention efforts
  • Support efforts to reduce food waste and address food insecurity
  • Promote physical activity at meetings lasting longer than one hour


Other coordinated strategies conducted with specific CNAP member organizations include:

  • Support healthy nutrition standards (e.g. vending, food bank health and wellness, retail guidelines)
  • Partner with the Transitional Assistance Department/CalFresh to conduct outreach and nutrition education targeting the CalFresh Food-eligible population
  • Support organizations in their Policy, Systems, and Environment (PSE) change efforts
