Project by PHI's Cultiva La Salud Wins Let's Get Healthy California Innovation Challenge

January 06, 2016

A project from PHI's Cultiva La Salud is among 23 winners chosen by the Let's Get Healthy California Innovation Challenge, the California Health and Human Services Agency (CHHS) and the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) announced yesterday. The challenge received nearly 100 submissions from across the state this summer.

Cultiva La Salud's submission titled "Street Vendors: Bringing Healthy Food to Central Valley Residents" is a fledgling innovative program in Fresno. At the core of the this pilot project is the intent to increase access to healthy foods in food desert neighborhoods by working with existing food vendors and converting them to becoming “healthy” food vendors.

The additional benefit is the creation of small business opportunities for local, low-income residents—linking business to public health and prevention.  more
