The Arkansas Coalition for Obesity Prevention (ArCOP) is a state-wide coalition that works with communities at the grass-roots level. Through system, environment and policy changes we thrive to increase access to healthy affordable foods and access to places to engage in physical activity. Growing Healthy Locals was created for community members. We want to recoginize the community member’s success stories that have been made through healthy changes in communities. We want a place where “Locals” can strengthen their community awareness by identifying healthy places where their families can live, play, work and worship effectively through the opportunity to find local farmer’s markets, community gardens, places to be active and form support systems within each Growing Healthy Community.
