LiveWell Alamosa

Cultivando SLVLCLiveWell Alamosa (now San Luis Valley Local Foods Coalition) began in 2006 as a group working on a non-competitive planning grant offered by the Colorado Physical Activity and Nutrition (COPAN) program to increase physical activity and nutrition in Alamosa County. The coalition’s mission is to foster an equitable food system that restores the health of the people, community, economy and ecosystem.

At its inception, LiveWell Alamosa worked on a broad spectrum of policies, focusing largely on improving healthy food access and nutrition education within the Alamosa School District. The coalition transitioned to a focus on healthy food access and sustainability in 2008 after staff attended the Community Food Security Conference in Philadelphia. The information gleaned by the coalition led to the formation of the San Luis Valley Local Foods Coalition, which continues the work of LiveWell Alamosa today.
