  • Description:
    CDC’s High Obesity Program (HOP) promotes healthy eating and active living in counties that have more than 40% prevalence of adult obesity. CDC provides funds to land grant universities that work with communities —mostly in rural areas—whose residents may have less access to healthy foods and fewer opportunities to be physically active. • The University of Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service works with local Extension staff in six counties and their partners to:• Promote acceptance of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program/Women, Infants and Children (SNAP/WIC) benefits at food retailers.• Increase healthy eating options with retailers and farmers’ markets.• Create and enhance safe places for physical activity with faith-based groups, city government planners, and youth.
