The Shape Up SF (SUSF) Coalition was formed in 2006 to address growing levels of preventable chronic disease, especially in San Francisco's low-income communities and communities of color. 


To advance health equity in San Francisco by collaborating with community partners on system changes that increase nutrition security and active living.


Shape Up SF envisions an equitable, thriving community where all who live, work, learn, and play in San Francisco enjoy optimal health.


Health equity, community, collaboration, prevention & wellness


  • Convene mission-aligned partners for collective impact and networking
  • Address health equity and upstream risk factors for chronic disease prevention through stakeholder capacity building
  • Policies, systems, and environmental strategies
