“America’s obesity problem does not affect all parts of our country equally. In addition to geographic, demographic and environmental factors, ethnicity also plays a major role, such as in Arizona, where American Indian children suffer obesity at three times the rate of non-Hispanic Whites,” said Curt Ellis, executive director of FoodCorps. “We are grateful for the Aetna Foundation’s support in advancing better nutrition among children in American Indian communities in Arizona, and for its genuine interest in our organization and its mission.”FoodCorps currently operates in 61 sites across 12 states. Last year, its service members worked with more than 50,000 young people to improve their access to healthy food and increase their understanding of a healthy diet.
