Establish “Food As Medicine” programs.

Investing in our health and wellness means equipping all Santa Barbara County residents with access to the necessary resources — from support services to education — to be healthy and productive individuals. One way we can achieve this is by addressing chronic health issues through better nutrition.


SBCFAN Working Groups bring together individuals from across the food system to collaborate on projects that result in the activation of one or more Santa Barbara County Food Action Plan goals. Click on a Working Group below to learn more and/or request to join.
