Good nutrition is essential to maintaining a healthy weight and prevent many chronic diseases, including diabetes, heart disease, and obesity.
However, six of the top ten causes of death in the U.S. are linked to poor nutrition.
Eating healthy is more than just a personal choice. Communities than ensure access to nutritious, affordable foods are essential to improving community nutrition. The Heart Network works with partners in Essex, Franklin, and Hamilton Counties to improve access to healthy foods using the 3 P’s – Policy, Programs and Projects.
