Federal Funding Given to Spread Healthy Eating Word


Thursday, October 10, 2013

To spread the message of healthy eating and adequate exercise to low-income residents, the county’s Public Health Department will receive $865,833 a year in federal funding through 2016. The money comes from the state’s Network for a Healthy California program, which is paid for by the USDA. Public Health will work with community organizations to get the word out. The grant money is about $81,000 more than the previous agreement; the extra funds will allow a new health educator to reach 800 additional residents.
