Support neighborhood peer-to-peer education and empowerment to improve health outcomes.

Investing in our health and wellness means equipping all Santa Barbara County residents with access to the necessary resources — from support services to education — to be healthy and productive individuals. One way we can achieve this is by supporting the development of neighborhood networks of volunteers to provide peer-to-peer education and empowerment to food insecure community members to improve their health.
