Outreach 10: SC Read Eat Grow In Your Community

Building on two successful years of food literacy programs in partnership with public libraries and other community organizations statewide, the South Carolina State Library would like to expand outreach to small 95 communities by using local trusted health partners and small transportable kitchen kits to demonstrate healthy cooking and living strategies for people of all ages. This project will support improved relationships between the public libraries and local community resources, as well as promote health literacy for 95 and underserved populations across ten different counties in South Carolina. To accomplish these goals, we will purchase kitchen in a box kits to be distributed to ten different 95 towns with public library branches, train staff to use the materials for food literacy programming, and assist with building partnerships with local health representatives and community leaders such as home visit nurses, pastors, pediatricians, school nurses and more.
