This chapter focuses on the Community Organizing for Obesity Prevention in Humboldt Park (CO-OP HP). One of CO-OP HP's first strategies was to collect more data about obesity and health in Humboldt Park. The data obtained helped the emerging CO-OP HP Steering Committee define initiatives to promote healthy eating and physical activity for children and families in Humboldt Park. The data revealed many barriers community members faced when making choices about food and activity. The evolution of CO-OP HP, CO-OP HP intervention strategies, evaluation of CO-OP HP, and lessons learned from CO-OP HP are discussed.
