Douglas County wins KAW award


Congrats to Douglas County for receiving the Community Health Champion award from the Kansas Alliance for Wellness! 

The community was recognized for utilizing the Douglas County Food Policy Council to create a thriving local food system. Those involved have worked to recruit diverse partners, including producers, consumers, hunger organizations, local government, nonprofits and private sector organizations to solicit feedback. Douglas County also has enhanced the food system by developing a food hub, SNAP Double-Up program at farmers markets and community gardens.
