The Rudd Center is devoted to improving the world’s diet, preventing obesity, and reducing weight stigma.  

Our work documents the impact of local, federal and state food policies designed to improve access to healthy food in child care, schools, and neighborhoods.  We raise public awareness of the harm associated with unhealthy food marketing directed at children and teens.  We provide resources for parents, teachers, health care professionals, and the media to reduce weight stigma and discrimination.

The Rudd Center welcomes your support to help us continue this important work. Every donation helps fund research, outreach, and education.

We're proud of everything we've accomplished in 2013. For a report of the year's highlights, click here.
