Event description

Description

Good health is not random. It is rooted in the development of an equitable, well-functioning community.

External factors including access to healthy food, stable employment, safe neighborhoods, and affordable housing – all of which are influenced by race, class, and gender – impact the health of individuals and families on a daily basis.

Please join The FARE Project as we host a series of Common Ground conversations with our partners in the food access movement on the social determinants of health in Cleveland and Cuyahoga County. These discussions are designed to result in a series of action steps that we can take collectively to build demand for healthy neighborhoods in our community, improving the health of those most in need.
