OAKLAND, Ca – The HOPE Collaborative was recently granted $1.2 million from the W.K Kellogg Foundation. They will mark the beginning of their implementation action plan at Laney College, on October 31 from 11 am – 3 pm.

There will be healthy free food, plant give aways, music, spoken word and children’s activities. Representatives from the Oakland Mayor’s Office are expected to be present along with other dignitaries.

The HOPE Collaborative is a group of organizations, institutions, and community residents that was formed to improve the health and quality of life in Oakland’s most vulnerable neighborhoods by transforming its food and fitness environments.

“HOPE seeks to dramatically decrease the disparities amongst community ownership, health and education,” said Leon Davis, co-chair of HOPE. “This then,” Davis continued to say, “will also decrease disparities in crime, improve property value and allow our neighborhoods to become more resilient in dealing with the social problems that affect all of Oakland.”

The HOPE Collaborative envisions: Having more vibrant Oakland neighborhoods that provide equitable access to affordable, healthy, locally grown food; safe and inviting places for physical activity and play; and sustainable, successful, local economies.

The HOPE Collaborative welcomes all community members and organizations that share the vision of a vibrant, healthy Oakland to come and celebrate at Laney College, on October 31 from 11 am – 3 pm.
