County Gets $16 Million from CDC

Today, while studying the website for the County Board of Supervisors, I noticed this announcement:

County Gets $16 Million from CDC.” 

These federal monies will help improve local access to healthy, fresh food by funding projects including those that:

  • Increase consumption of healthy and locally grown food in schools, foster group homes, senior meal sites and other locations
  • Increase the number of farmers markets that are participating with nutrition assistance programs
  • Increase opportunities for physical activity in before/after school programs
  • Work with land use and transportation planners to increase opportunities for residents to be physically active and eat nutritious foods
