Jibb+ contributes to a vital Helmond by making sufficient exercise and healthy food accessible and attractive for everyone, with extra attention to reducing health differences.
Healthy food and healthy exercise belongtogether
Jibb+ was founded in 2019 from a merger of the JIBB foundation and the Jong Helmond Lekker Gezond foundation. The reason behind the merger is the idea that attention to healthy food and healthy exercise belong together. Weight, behaviour, nutrition and exercise cannot be seen separately from each other. With one integral approach to health, we want to have an even more positive impact on the health of the people in the Municipality of Helmond.
Reducing health inequalities
Jibb+ aims to reduce health inequalities, because we believe this is necessary. In the past years we have seen a growing gap between the different target groups. For example, elderly people exercise significantly less than young people. And the new Dutch generally make fewer healthy food choices than the non-new Dutch. Health is important to everyone, so that is why we are working to close the gap.
Jibb+ is for the people of Helmond.
We bring professionals, volunteers and good ideas together on the basis of commitment and ambition. We do this by combining the energy, knowledge and skills of internal and external partners. By bringing things together, we work together with the people of Helmond in an efficient and impactful manner towards a more vital Helmond.
