Healthy Living Initiatives Evaluation Report

In 2015, Food Bank of South Jersey (FBSJ) partnered with Creative Research and Evaluation, LLC to conduct an evaluation that analyzed the effectiveness of Healthy Living Initiatives (HLI) programming and its benefits, as experienced and perceived by children, teen and adult participants. Through focus groups, a qualitative research method,  56 former HLI participants at 5 different schools and community organizations in the City of Camden were reached; these organizations are part of Campbell Soup Company’s Healthy Communities program, a funder for HLI programming. Program participants’ overall feedback about their experiences was positive and demonstrated that HLI programs increased their awareness and knowledge about healthy eating which led to positive changes in their eating habits. However, the evaluation study also highlighted key challenges that some participants stated were barriers for sustained change. Click below to read the entirety of the report.
