LWPBC targets children in the lower socio-economic areas. There is a growing gap between childhood obesity in higher vs. lower income families. It is evident that there is an increase in lower income families due to the higher cost of eating healthy and the lack of resources to fund the participation in extracurricular activities. These circumstances often produce an environment, which inevitably leads to obesity.
