Food for Life Food Insecurity
 
 
 
The North Alabama Agriplex, which works to promote North Alabama's agriculture heritage and future, is in our fourth year of the Food for Life program intended to promote healthy food access and supplement science education in Cullman County, Alabama and surrounding areas. These goals have been accomplished through directly connecting people with local sources of fresh produce and education programs targeting children and adults in the community. Cullman, like many rural areas in Alabama has high rates of childhood and adult obesity among impoverished groups. Cullman also has a successful agricultural industry with many different types of crops and livestock produced locally making Cullman uniquely suited for the Food for Life program.
