The Candy Buy Back Program is a collaborative effort among local health agencies and other community members to address the issue of childhood obesity and dental health among our local children. After Halloween, participating dentists and physicians purchase unopened candy from young trick-or-treaters for $1 per pound. They then coordinate with local shippers to send the candy to Operation Gratitude, which fills thousands of care packages for troops overseas. Operation Gratitude "seeks to lift morale and put smiles on faces by sending care packages addressed to individual Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines deployed in harm's way." Learn more at www.opgratitude.com. Operation Gratitude is located in Chatsworth, California to assemble the packages. Once completed, they are sent to service members overseas. For more information email healthykidschoice.sabrina@gmail.com.

Here is your chance to show our brave service men and women how much you appreciate them. Join us as we "treat our troops" and support our children's health!

Program partners include Healthy Kids Choice, Inc, The San Diego Dental Society, and The San Diego County Childhood Obesity Initiative.
