What We Do The Nevada County Public Health Department supports the health of our community through programs that make the healthy choice the easy choice. That includes encouraging physical activity, healthy cooking classes, and other collaborations. This is funded through CalFresh Healthy Living support.
NEOP is proud to partner with local community members through nutrition and physical activity class offerings, Rethink Your Drink, food tastings, community gardens, health fairs and wellness policy support.
Nevada County is a proud partner in a new state initiative to encourage CalFresh recipients in making diet and lifestyle choices that work toward preventing chronic disease. Check out the eatFresh website.
Rethink Your Drink
NEOP utilizes the Rethink Your Drink campaign to spread the word on healthy alternatives to sugary beverages. CA Department of Public Health cites studies showing that sugary drinks contribute to increased risk for certain chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Check out some great resources on sugar sweetened beverages, recipes and come to NEOP's Rethink Your Drink presentations!
