Richmond Community Conversations: Food Edition

Richmond City Health District would like to invite you to attend their upcoming event “Richmond Community Conversations: Food Edition,” which will offer a unique opportunity to ex14224699_737132353094920_1768798485209280352_nplore community perspectives on food access and nutritional health in Richmond. This past Spring, RCHD conducted a series of focus groups with residents across the city to better understand nutritional issues residents face in their neighborhoods including appeal, availability, and affordability of healthy food items. We received invaluable insight from 120 participants, and Richmond Community Conversations will serve as a platform to present our findings at East End and Northside community sites and engage residents in prioritizing next steps to combat these issues. Residents who attend these presentations will be invited to serve as active partners in building change in their communities by directly supporting RCHD’s growing food access initiatives. RCHD will provide free advocacy training to all interested attendees in partnership with the American Heart Association, and a Citizen’s Committee will be convened to advise RCHD leadership as an action plan for citywide and neighborhood-specific nutritional health is developed.
