Fit NOLA is a partnership between the City of New Orleans and local organizations, working together to create a healthier city by promoting physical activity and improved nutrition. As a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Culture of Health Prize winner and a Let’s Move! City, Fit NOLA aims to improve the quality of life for all who live, learn, work and play in New Orleans.
The New Orleans Health Department leads the effort to shape a shared vision for the Fit NOLA partnership. As Fit NOLA addresses obesity, the partnership receives guidance from a community-based coordinating committee, and executes projects through six sector groups.
Over the past three years, Fit NOLA has grown to a partnership of over 200 non-profit organizations, schools, direct-service providers, businesses, and community members working to promote physical activity and healthy eating in their spheres of influence.
Together we can turn the tide to win the battle against obesity and create a fitter city.
