At our local AZ WIC agency in Nogales, we plan to raise awareness about the latest on obesity in AZ. Even though the newspapers toot that Obesity in AZ levels off but we are still in the red and alot of work needs to be done. Our WIC agency offer nutrition education services to families with infants and children up to 5 years old. This is the best opportunity and the best time to make a change, an impact, a difference in these children’s lives towards healthy life styles!

I’m part of a team organizing Food Day in Del Norte County and the adjacent Tribal lands. We are in the far northwest corner of California and getting ready for our third year of Food Day events. Our schedule is still getting finalized with times, but it will be up soon on our Food Day 2013 page of our Growing Tables blog:

I would like to be a coordinator for this area of North Carolina. We also hosted Food Revolution on May 19th for this area and had people from all over the piedmont region attend. It was a huge success!

In North Carolina, Cabarrus and Rowan Counties have eight census tracts that are described as food deserts. Nearly 50,000 residents of Cabarrus and Rowan Counties live in food deserts, with 41% defined as having low access. In a most recent study, Rowan County ranked 97 out of a 100 with regards to access to healthy food, many of which have the potential for life threatening health problems like diabetes, heart disease, and obesity.

In October 2012, Mobile Farm Fresh, a local non-profit and mobile farmer’s market, will be launched in an effort to bring healthy, local whole foods to areas that do not have easy access to grocery stores and farmer’s markets. Collaborating with schools, worksites, and faith-based organizations, we will reach a substantial portion of residents of low income individuals and neighborhoods with messages, interventions, and education on health & wellness to improve health and nutrition.
