Champions for Change

Today our nutritionist, Ryan Gamba, spoke at the regional HEAL (Healthy Eating Active Living) conference. The mission of HEAL is to improve the health of children, families, and individuals within the Gold Country Region through education, policies, and environments that promote physical activity, nutrition, and access to healthy foods. Ryan was also recognized as a Champion for Change for his work increasing access to healthy food through the Food Bank’s Moveable Market program. Ryan had also nominated several of our community partners for the award including: Jie Dong from The Greenery Housing Apartments and Oralia Rodriguez of RISE Inc. in Esparto.

Who would you nominate as a Champion for Change?
