Mission

The mission of Get Moving Kern is to improve the health of children and adults in Kern County by promoting healthy eating and active living.


History

Get Moving Kern is a Nutrition and Physical Activity Community Coalition that was formed in December 2004, when three existing groups merged.  The Nutrition Task Force of the American Cancer Society, the Kern County Childhood Obesity Prevention Coalition, and the Bakersfield Vision 20/20 Obesity Prevention Committee were all working on variations of nutrition and physical activity promotion in Kern County.

As one coalition, Get Moving Kern can effectively educate the community and promote nutritious eating and appropriate physical activity to combat the growing obesity problem in Kern County.
