Fresno Bee

For Fresno County farming communities preparing for a dry summer and fewer farming jobs, a $100,000 grant to educate residents about healthy eating choices was a bit of bright news Thursday.

The UnitedHealthcare grant, awarded to Centro La Familia Advocacy Services, won’t eliminate food needs in struggling communities but will help families find ways to cope, Fresno County officials said.
