Supporting a healthy Coos County in which to live, work and play

The Food & Nutrition Group (FNG) is a subgroup of Coos Healthier Together, a community coalition working to improve the health of Coos County residents. The FNG is focused on increasing intake of fruits & vegetables, to link residents of Coos County with healthy foods, particularly fruits and vegetables, improving access that encourages daily intake, and improving the food environment in ways that will increase access to healthy foods (fresh fruits and vegetables) for children and adults.
