Turn Things Around: Obesity Prevention at the Grassroots
In an effort to confront obesity in her community, Stefani, a single mother of five in Pasadena, works with other parents to formulate local policies that will protect their children from the adverse effects of food marketing.
Our goal was to expose the inner workings of the Pasadena Parent Action group. Our aim was to document the bottom-up approach that the parents in this group were taking in order to effect policy change in their community in regards to healthy food issues that affect their children.
