Cultiva La Salud is a three-year program funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health (REACH) initiative. Cultiva La Salud targets Fresno, Kern and Stanislaus counties in six largely Latino neighborhoods and communities including Southeast Fresno, Orange Cove, Southeast Bakersfield, Arvin, Ceres and Turlock. Cultiva La Salud, Spanish for “cultivate health,” will increase access to healthy food and beverage options as well as opportunities for physical activity among Latinos. The project will work in partnership with the Dolores Huerta Foundation and the Ceres Partnership for Healthy Children.
Cultiva La Salud builds upon the work of the Central California Regional Obesity Prevention Program (CCROPP).
