A Santa Barbara doctor who prescribes vegetables instead of pharmaceuticals for his type-two diabetes patients sounds too good to be true, but Dr. Kerr at Sansum Diabetes Research Institute has proven the method to be more than effective. Thanks to his dedication to nutrition and a partnership with Unity Shoppe and Fairview Gardens, dozens of local patients have found an affordable, safe way to treat their condition.

Farming for Life is just one example of the way the Santa Barbara County Food Action Plan hopes to impact our communities. With the belief that healthy food is essential for our wellness, community, economy, and environment, the Food Action Plan is working to build a more resilient, sustainable and nutrition-oriented food system through collaboration and community investment.
