THURSTON THRIVES
food  
 

purpose/scope:

The Food Action Team is meeting during the middle and late part of 2013 to develop a strategy and recommendations on how best to improve the health of the Thurston County community through food.  A draft food strategy was presented by Robert Coit on June 11, 2013 [see video below]. 

An example of the way food affects health includes decreased risk of obesity and chronic diseases through an increased consumption of fruits and vegetables.  Access to safe and healthy foods and an environment in which the healthy choice is the easy choice also improve the potential for a healthful diet, in turn leading to improved or maintained good health.
