Tip of the Month
Our City's own Flint Fresh HUB was recently featured in an article from the American Heart Association. In the article, the American Heart Association refers to evidence-based research from the US Department of Agriculture that notes "Adults who can't regularly buy nutritious foods are more likely to develop heart disease or have a stroke...Those facing food insecurity are also more likely to have high blood pressure and diabetes, both risk factors for cardiovascular disease." This program and the growing local food scene here in Flint paint a bright picture for the future of community nutrition and public health in our wonderful city!
