This past Tuesday South Kern Sol attended the Building Healthy Communities Central Table Meeting, a community-wide collaboration opportunity informing members of local issues, such as proposed changes to discipline in area schools, addressing access to fresh fruits and vegetables, neighborhood security, and environmental issues. Parents and students also decided on an action plan for the future funding of area schools. The meeting was held in the Veterans Hall in Arvin, Calif.
Building Healthy Communities is a community initiative comprised of over 1,200 residents, youth, business and organizations to make positive change in the communities of Arvin, Lamont, Weedpatch, and the unincorporated areas of Southeast Bakersfield.
South Kern Sol asked attendees, “What would you like to see improved in your community in one years’ time?”
