Draft Strategy Presented to Board of Health Today

Did you know Thurston County's percentage of adults and middle school age children who are obese is higher than the state's?

The Thurston Thrives Food Action Team has identified strategies for improving the health of the Thurston County community through food. Food Action Team Lead, Robert Coit, presented the recommendations to the Thurston County Board of Health and the Thurston Thrives Advisory Council today.
