Policy update: What’s working in Kansas
KC Healthy Kids’ state policy director Ashley Jones-Wisner shared some things to cheer about at today’s meeting of the Greater Kansas City Food Policy Coalition.
And now, an update from Beth Low-Smith, vice president of policy:
The House Committee on Agriculture today released their long-awaited report on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. It draws upon testimony from more than 60 witnesses, including Kansans and Missourians, about the critical ways SNAP impacts families, farmers and businesses.
As we prepare for changes to the policy landscape in 2017 we are assessing opportunities and challenges. Time is of the essence in order to continue effectively advocating for a strong regional food system and food policies that positively impact the nutritional, economic, social, and environmental health of Greater Kansas City. We’re busier than ever now.
The temperature has spiked into the mid-90s on the this summer day and the neighborhood kids run through water at Seven Oaks Park for relief from the heat.
Tomorrow Beth Low-Smith and 14 others on a Mayoral-appointed task force will kick off the first of a year-long series of public meetings that will analyze the financial aspects of Kansas City’s current and long-term water needs.
KC Healthy Kids and the Grocery Access Task Force are looking to give a boost to local grocers like Leon Stapleton, who play an important role in the health of their nearby residents.
It took Kansas City, Kansas, residents and city officials by surprise this summer. A sign went up announcing that the Price Chopper at 43rd and State Avenue was going to close. Then before anyone knew it the shop’s lights darkened, the doors locked, and shoppers were forced to go elsewhere for fresh food.
On any given day you will find Leon Stapleton inside the door of Leon’s Thriftway on East 39th Street.
A new food pantry just for families diagnosed with food allergies or Celiac Disease opened today with a formal ribbon cutting at Community Assistance Council, 10901 Blue Ridge Boulevard in Kansas City, Missouri.
