A Connected Child is a Protected Child

March is national nutrition MONTH

National Nutrition month is all about the importance of healthy eating and regular exercise.  It’s a chance to learn more about enjoying plant-based foods, doing more home cooking, and shopping on a budget.

It’s also an opportunity to recognize that for many in our community, a barrier to healthy eating is as basic as the lack of grocery stores and markets in low-income neighborhoods.

Oakland’s food divide has been studied by the Oakland Hope Collaborative and reported on by Oakland North.  For example, a sobering statistic is that in Oakland’s flatlands, where the median household income is $32,000, there’s an average of one supermarket per 93,126 residents.

Perinatal Equity Initiative

Black women and birthing people face challenges that stem from policies and systems rooted in racism. They are twice as likely to live in poverty or to experience hardships, such as homelessness or the incarceration of a loved one, during pregnancy. In addition, chronic, transgenerational exposure to racism results in toxic stress that has been shown to have a negative impact on the health and wellbeing of Black individuals, regardless of income or education levels.
