Our Mission

To empower and support Durango and La Plata County in becoming an interconnected community where citizens and visitors have access to affordable, local, nutritious and culturally appropriate food and are empowered to live a healthy, active and sustainable lifestyle.


HLLP received LiveWell Colorado grant funding from 2006 – 2013. This funding enabled HLLP to set in motion goals based on healthy eating and increasing physical activity among target populations. Ultimately, LiveWell funding brought almost $700,000 into our community to promote healthy lifestyle behaviors. Since 2012, HLLP has existed as a grassroots coalition with involvement from local organizations and individuals interested in continuing our mission.
