form the community action plan. Concurrent to the planning steps outlined above we will be working on forming the Coalition that will implement our plan. This means there will be additional activities and meetings to discuss governance, recruitment, and other group related tasks. The overarching goals behind the WK Kellogg (our funders) Food and Fitness Initiative: • Fitness goals of the initiative are to increase access to safe and inviting activity options and spaces for physical activity. PUFFA’s Active Living Action Team is working on the fitness goals of the initiative. • Food system goals of the initiative are to increase access to foods that are local, affordable, and healthy. PUFFA’s Nutrition Action Team and Food System Action Team are working on the food system goals of the initiative. The fitness goals relate to the four major domains of the fitness environment: School, Parks, and Recreation, Active Transportation, and Community Design/Land Use. The food system goals relate to domains of the food system- the who, what, where, when, and how of our food. They include: Producing, Processing, Distributing, Retailing, Preparing, and Eating. PUFFA has broken these domains into two groups- the Food System Action Team is looking at Producing, Processing, and Distributing and the Nutrition Action Team is exploring the Retailing, Preparing, and Eating domains. The Community Action Plan we develop will likely include: 1. Policy and system change strategies 1. Resource strategies 2. Collaboration strategies 3. Communication Strategies 4. Evaluation strategies
