Fit, Fresh, & Fun Forum

Riverside residents are looking to improve their lifestyles and physical condition through exercise, a healthy diet, and active living. Former Mayor Ron Loveridge and I established the Fit, Fresh, & Fun Forum (The Forum) to explore current fitness resources available to the public, identify unmet fitness needs, and strategize ways to expand opportunities for all Riverside residents. The 30-member task force meets six times a year to:

  • create a vision and establish strategies for creating healthy kids programs,
  • launching a workplace wellness campaign
  • establishing City polices which encourage healthy industries,
  • launching a citywide campaign to promote a healthy lifestyle,
  • expanding citywide community gardens and farmer's markets, and
  • reduce overweight and obesity to less than 50% in the City of Riverside.
