The OSU Moore Family Center for Whole Grain Foods, Nutrition & Preventive Health is pleased to announce this request for proposals for the 2020 Healthy Community Outreach Program. This statewide outreach program seeks to improve the nutrition and food environment in underserved communities across the State of Oregon in partnership with our colleagues in the OSU Extension Service and local community health partners.
