ACTION FOCUSES ON HEALTH: In the wake of Youngstown’s declaration that Youngstown is a food desert, ACTION will assist others in addressing the community’s food insecurities.

A $30,000 grant from the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America will assist as ACTION plans to take an active role in helping to change people’s eating habits. ACTION has started “Healthier YOU,” a series of initiative building-workshops that will be held in collaboration with health care professionals and other interested parties to improve the health status of the population.

Collaborators include Mercy Health Nutrition Department, Youngstown State University Dietitian Department, United Health and Lady Buggs Farm. The program will be held 3 to 6 p.m. Jan. 26 at Youngstown’s B&O Station, with discussion on the benefits of eating healthier, as well as the ways in which the new program works.

During the event, attendants will have a chance to engage in food sampling, line dancing, and yoga. Admission is free with registration needed by Sunday at ACTIONoh@aol.com. For questions, call 234-232-9043.
