Agatston Urban Nutrition Intiative



The Agatston Urban Nutrition Initiative (AUNI), a program of the University of Pennsylvania’s Netter Center for Community Partnerships, was created to sustain healthy communities by promoting food education, food sovereignty, and good nutrition and physical fitness in West Philadelphia.  AUNI’s activities are fully integrated into the University-Assisted Community School model. AUNI organizes school day, after school and summer learning opportunities for more than 10,000 students and their families at 20 public schools and community centers in Philadelphia. AUNI’s ecological approach to food and  nutrition education includes hands-on experiences for program participants to grow, cook, consume and sell healthy foods. AUNI has School Food Education programs, Youth Development programs, and an Adult & Senior Nutrition Program.
