Before the summer kicked off, college student Lisa Riggsbee from North Carolina helped us start the conversation about bringing healthy food to our communities. The work continues. From Asheville all the way to Pennsylvania, young leaders across the country are doing their part to make sure not only that kids are getting their fill of fun, but also learning about what foods are healthy to eat. This week, let's check out what folks are doing in York City to bring access to healthy foods to cut down on obesity and other health problems in their town.
A couple of weeks ago, our first guest blogger, Lisa Riggsbee, shared her thoughts about the Healthy Living Pantry and Mobile Kitchen. This week, we wanted to follow up with what young leaders are doing out in Asheville, North Carolina with an Eat smart, Move More Video.
Lisa Riggsbee is a student at University of North Carolina- Asheville (UNCA) where she is a Health and Wellness Promotion major with minors in Psychology and Mass Communication. Having a passion for writing and community wellness promotion, Lisa began working with the YMCA of Western North Carolina Healthy Living Pantry expansion project in January 2014 in an effort to expand the reach of the program and has since more than quadrupled pantry participation. This is her Y. Her words. Her story.
