Network for a Healthy California - Northcoast Region
To improve local coordination and implementation of nutrition education programs, the Regional Network (RN) was developed by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), Cancer Prevention and Nutrition Section (CPNS). The RNN grant was made possible through funding from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food Stamp Program1.
The Goals of the Network are to increase daily consumption of fruits and vegetables to the recommended amount, increase daily physical activity, decrease food insecurity, and decrease chronic disease.
Eleven regions throughout California received RNN grants. The Northcoast Region consists of six counties (Del Norte, Humboldt, Lake, Mendocino, Napa, and Sonoma). The California Health Collaborative plays an active role as the RNN lead agency for the North Coast Region, responsible for coordinating and supporting Network funded projects and developing partnerships and collaborations to help low-income populations adopt healthy eating and physically active lifestyles in their communities.
