Neigborhoods Matter

The Neighborhood Matters program (through the Spokane Regional Health District) is off to a good start in East Central. One thing they are working on is the creation of a community kitchen at Liberty Park United Methodist Church - this wouldn't be gourmet cooking classes, but rather a hands-on approach to how a family can prepare more than one meal at a time and increase its sense of food security.
Other outreach programs include an effort to reduce smoking among pregnant women - twice as many pregnant women in Spokane smoke as compared to the rest of the state.
