Potter Trust Forum hosted a Plan4Health!
The CenDel Foundation hosted a Plan4Health presentation on January 25th, at Christ Episcopal Church in Dover to inform nonprofits in Central Delaware about the Plan4health Initiative.  About 14 organizations attended the event.  Presenters David Edgell and Mary Ellen Gray spoke about the grant that has funded this project and the process that has been made so far.  Delaware Plan4Health is a statewide initiative to look at how state, county, and city planning offices can change how they plan for development or redevelopment in order to address issues of lack of access to transportation, healthy food, and a healthy lifestyle.  They have started with Kent County as Kent County has the highest rates of obesity in the state and other indicators of chronic disease.
 
The Plan4Health program aims to combat two determinants of chronic disease—a lack of physical activity and lack of access to nutritious food—by working with local coalitions, public health and planning departments to increase healthy living options in every community.
 
The CenDel Foundation, in partnership with the Delaware Community Foundation is committed to helping generous people transform their communities through charitable giving. For more information, please call 302.724.7538 or visit www.cendelfoundation.org
