City officials plan to promote healthy eating habits and work to increase access to outdoor space in the city with the help of a new $30,000 grant to fight obesity. Placentia was one of two cities awarded a grant by the Orange County Nutrition and Physical Activity Collaborative to assist in encouraging community nutrition. The city is partnering with Second Harvest Food Bank to provide nutritional food to students participating in after-school programs across the city, Jon Nicks, Placentia neighborhood services manager, said.
