, announced that it has donated $20,000 to the Children's Alliance to support phase one of the Washington State Childhood Obesity Prevention Campaign. The goal of phase one is to lay the foundation for a multi-year childhood obesity prevention campaign, focused on creating policy change in Washington State to improve the nutrition and physical activity environment for children and youth.

C.H.E.F. joins the Children's Alliance and several other organizations in this statewide initiative, targeted primarily to low-income children and youth, as well as children and youth of color. Other initiative partners include the Seattle Foundation, Public Health Seattle & King County, Washington Dental Service Foundation, Washington Health Foundation, and Washington State Department of Health.

Larry Clark, C.H.E.F. President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "We have a long history of supporting efforts to fight childhood obesity and improve child wellness, and we're pleased to contribute to this important initiative in our state. C.H.E.F. has had the good fortune of working with the Children's Alliance for many years, and we've witnessed first-hand the tremendous positive impact they've made in the lives of so many children and youth in Washington."

"As a nonprofit organization committed to improving the health and well-being of those who need it most, we firmly believe in the need for public policy and advocacy to impact change in government at the local, state, and national levels," said Julie Peterson, C.H.E.F.'s Senior Director of Public Affairs. "Until now, there has not been a coordinated, sustained public-policy advocacy effort within Washington State to address childhood obesity. Thanks to the efforts of the Children's Alliance and its partner organizations, a plan will be developed to ultimately eliminate this epidemic."
