Westwood (LWW) is a community supported project that works with residents and community members in Westwood to reduce barriers to and increase opportunities for healthy eating and active living.
LWW brings the top down and the bottom up by partnering with everyone on the ground level, from elementary students and grassroots organizations to local residents and neighborhood alliances, in order to make sure their voices are heard. LWW then brings the community’s voice to the top by leveraging its existing partnerships with school districts, local government officials, and other organizations to provide the resources and services needed by the community.
Most importantly, LWW works closely with the local community so that they are involved every step of the way, creating a sustainable, healthy neighborhood.
