About the Project
On February 5, 2020, UCPCOG kicked off the Healthy FAM project with partners from across the five-county region. This North Carolina Health News article Eastern NC communities look to map their way out of hunger excels at describing the overall goals and impacts of the project. You can also view the brief project description to learn more about the project's goals, outcomes, and deliverables.
The Healthy FAM project is funded through a partnership with the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust. UCPCOG is working closely with Working Landscapes, the Croatan Institute, ABC2, and many other regional and statewide partners to carry out the project.
