Nutrition & Healthy Lifestyles: Models and Lessons
Since the creation of the Health Fund, our grant partners have worked diligently to expand access to healthy food and physical activity in Michigan—especially for children and older adults who face disproportionate barriers.
Reports and case studies help us identify key successes and points of growth in these past grants, opening the door for future growth and replication.
The successes and challenges from our first two years of grantmaking reveal some key lessons—particularly about the common ingredients of effective, sustainable projects.
There are hundreds of food interventions in Michigan, from food as medicine programs in clinics to school nutrition initiatives. This report provides a sweeping overview of them all, as well as the communities getting missed.
