Illinois Nutrition Education Programs team members are active members of community, regional and statewide collaborations that focus on improving health and reducing the risk of obesity and associated chronic diseases.

By joining with like-minded agencies in these collaborations, greater collective impact and change happens to positively impact Illinois families.

In 2019, INEP worked with 107 coalitions, representing 1,416 organizations. Coalitions work together to make changes across communities, allowing for greater reach of families.
