Region 3 Columbia Plateau
(Gilliam, Morrow, Sherman, Umatilla & Wheeler counties)
The Columbia Plateau’s outreach blends the promotion of healthy eating and physical activity through teaching cooking skills with whole grains and herbs, and offering opportunities to be involved in a walking program or other activities that promote regular exercise while having fun with others in their community. Programs will offer an opportunity for community members to discover safe places for walking and exercise, help reduce obesity through better eating choices and exercise, and bring awareness about healthier lifestyles to the community as a whole.
