Community Program Highlights

Farm to School
The Farm to School program, coordinated by Renee Willemsen, has been awarded funding for another year. The Farm to School program brings garden, produce, and nutrition education to the Duluth schools, and helps to address food access for children.

Tobacco Control
The American Lung Association and the Bridging Health Duluth (BHD) Vaping Action Team have been hard at work advocating to ban the sale of flavored tobacco products at the state level. Many BHD organizations sent letters of support to the state legislature and participated in the Virtual Day of Action. If you'd like to learn more and/or get involved further, you can contact Taylour Blakeman with the American Lung Association at 

Mental Health
Northland Healthy Minds is resuming quarterly coalition meetings, called, Mental Health Coffee Chats. These virtual gatherings are intended to highlight a local mental health resource, provide a networking opportunity, and foster connection.
