Urban Oak Initiative
About This Hero
The Urban Oak Initiative is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that fights obesity, diabetes, and other chronic illnesses through innovative, kid-friendly programs. We teach Atlanta teens the benefits of plant-based nutrition and a healthy, active lifestyle.
Our programs are designed to address many of the issues our communities face today, including food security, nutrition, and socioeconomic opportunity. Our fun, creative outreach efforts target 12- to 18-year-old kids in the Metro Atlanta area.
Our non-judgmental approach allows for open discussion of the concerns that disproportionately affect our community.
