Health & Wellness

The Indianapolis Urban League’s Health and Wellness Department works to improve health outcomes and reduce health disparities through health education programs services, and referrals. The IUL engages in systems change initiatives throughout the city to improve access to affordable health care and healthy food. The Indianapolis Urban League’s Health and Wellness programming is responsive to the needs of the community and serves participants from elementary school through adults. Current Health and Wellness programs include Family Food & Fitness, Tobacco Prevention and Cessation (TPC).


Most American children and adults do not eat the recommended servings of fruits and vegetables. People with healthy eating patterns and who get regular physical activities live longer and are at lower risk for serious health problems such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and obesity.  A healthy eating pattern and physical activity can help manage existing chronic conditions.

Family Food & Fitness program seeks to help families make healthier food choices and choose physically active lifestyles. This program encourages the use of fresh fruits and vegetables through education sessions and cooking demonstrations that provide the tools, support, and information necessary to improve health and lower the risk for chronic disease. The Family Food & Fitness program also helps to improve access to healthy food through partnerships with healthcare systems, farmers, and other community organizations.
