Our Mission & Goals

The mission of the Santa Barbara County School Wellness Council is to support a county-wide effort by school districts and partner agencies to foster a culture of health and wellness in school communities.


During the SY 2019-20, the Santa Barbara County School Wellness Council will host the 6th Annual School Wellness Summit. We are encouraging a diverse group of stakeholders from districts, with preference given to school wellness committee members, to form teams to attend.

What to Expect

School Wellness Summit is an opportunity to share ideas with other leaders who are improving pupil outcomes by transforming schools into centers of health and wellness. Summit highlights include networking opportunities, learning how to create a culture that fosters student, campus and workplace wellness, plus a delicious lunch!


By becoming a sponsor of the School Wellness Summit, you will help build on the achievements of the School Food Initiative, Orfalea Foundation, and school partners to create a better future for the children of Santa Barbara County.
