Most Healthy Places North Carolina counties have limited access to healthy food options and recreation opportunities.
Community based organizations, local coalitions, and collaboratives are tackling these longstanding inequities and health concerns through a variety of means. These include, but are not limited to, the creation of food policy councils, establishing new farmers’ markets, advocating for more recreation resources, and ramping up healthy eating and active living programs. The Trust aims to reduce racial disparities in health care, so we are particularly interested in how communities are engaging residents with low incomes and people of color in these efforts.
