|Food Deserts: Virginia Challenges and Solutions|
Please join the Virginia Department of Health (VDH), Office of Minority Health and Health Equity (OMHHE) for a viewing and discussion of Living In A Food Desert, a documentary describing Virginia's food access problem, how it impacts residents in three parts of the state, and the initiatives in place that address local needs for healthy, affordable food.
Produced by Virginia State University in collaboration with Virginia Tech, this film will inspire you with its examples of dedicated Virginians creating real solutions to food access.
Following the film, there will be an opportunity for attendees to share successful strategies implemented in Virginia and learn from Melanie Deel about Lenowisco Health District initiatives and John Lewis about the Renew Richmond program.
