County Nutrition Action Plan

CNAP consists of Nutrition Assistance Programs and Organizations within Riverside County who are working together to increase physical activity and consumption of fruits and vegetables among Riverside County residents

Riverside County Nutrition Action Plan was created from a federal mandate that was initiated in February 2003 at the First National Nutrition Education Conference of all USDA nutrition assistance programs. California’s State Nutrition Action Plan (SNAP) began meeting in December 2003 with a goal of increasing fruit and vegetable consumption.

Three counties received WIC funding for pilot local “SNAP’s” and Riverside County was one of the recipients. Members of Riverside's CNAP have created the Riverside County Nutrition Action Plan as a working document outlining what services are provided by participating organizations to increase the consumption of fruits and vegetables in the County, and it will work on additional projects in the future.
