Skagit Healthy Communities

Skagit Healthy Communities (SHC) is a partnership of the Skagit County Public Health Department and Skagit Valley Hospital, with broad community support to focus on increasing access to healthful nutrition and physical activity to prevent and decrease chronic disease and obesity. SHC is one of nine Healthy Communities Projects funded, in part, with a Washington State Department of Health Prevention Block Grant and eight county's selected to participate in the two-year ARRA Nutrition, Physical Activity and Obesity project to increase healthy foods in neighborhood grocery stores and and increase walking and biking to school through Safe Routes to School. Our project has three primary work areas: walking, biking and pathways; active community environments; and children's health.
