Community Food Survey Underway

Live Well Saline County, a local health and wellness coalition, is doing a Community Food Survey to identify and develop solutions for the barriers to accessing food in Salina.

According to the organization,  if you live in Saline County, please complete the survey found here:

Please feel free to share with others as well.  The survey closes on March 12th.

The information gathered in this survey will inform efforts to implement initiatives through Pathways to a Healthy Kansas, a Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas grant initiative. Through the Pathways Initiative Saline County has the opportunity to apply for non-competitive implementation grants of up to $100,000 to support Safe Routes to Food projects. The results from the Saline County Food Survey will help identify the Safe Routes to Food projects that Live Well Saline County will apply for grant funding to implement.

The responses from this survey will be compiled with other responses and a one-page final report will be shared with the community. If you have any questions, please let me know.
