The Eating Disorder Foundation of Orange County is dedicated to the awareness and prevention of eating disorders
through education in our local schools, businesses, and sports organizations. We provide our community with honest and accurate eating disorder information accessible to all
residents of Orange County.
We offer individuals struggling with eating disorders and their families the opportunity to meet with others who are suffering through this devastating illness and get
the added support that is so desperately needed during recovery. We encourage interested individuals and groups to join together and form a strong voice that seeks to find a
cure for eating disorders.
Our primary goal is to reach out to our children and educate them on the realities of eating disorders before an eating disorder develops.
Special Focus: Athletes
We provide education, counseling referrals, and presentations to individual athletes as well as teams.
Of special research and focus
are those individuals who engage in the following sports (but not limited to): gymnastics, figure skating, dance, cheer, running, and/or any media focused profession such as
modeling or acting.
