Bay Area Nutrition & Physical Activity Collaborative (BANPAC)


The Bay Area Nutrition and Physical Activity Collaborative (BANPAC) is widely respected as a leading organization for improving the health of communities throughout the nine Bay Area Counties. BANPAC’s power comes from the expertise, influence and collective action of over 500 members, representing nearly 250 organizations. BANPAC has spearheaded policies and educational campaigns that ensure residents, especially those living in underserved communities, have access to healthy food and beverages, and safe places to be physically active. Their partnerships and efforts have led to healthy food and beverage policy changes at the organizational and city level and contributed to the passage of soda taxes in Berkeley, San Francisco, Albany and Oakland.

The Healthy Bodies Coalition was founded in June 2014 to help provide health resources to the community of Napa County in the areas of nutrition, physical activity, positive mental attitude, and breastfeeding. We have worked with over 80 stakeholders to create the Napa County Community Obesity Prevention Plan 2015-2020. The Napa County Community Obesity Prevention Plan was the first “component plan” to be developed following the completion of Live Healthy Napa County’s Community Health Improvement Plan. 

Our Goals: 

  • Increase public awareness of nutrition and physical activity issues and potential solutions.

  • Increase opportunities for access to healthy foods and physical activity in all environments where children and adults live, work, learn and play.    

  • Advocate for health-focused policies and practices in school and community environments and empower community members to do the same.        

  • Build collaborative relationships with government and community groups that support the HBC vision.
