Kenton County, KY
Targeted location(s): Kenton County

The Kenton County (Kentucky) Plan4Health Coalition (KCP4H) is working to provide access to nutritious food across the county. The Kenton County PLAN4Health Coalition is currently pursuing 4 initiatives: (1) a countywide assessment of food deserts—underserved neighborhoods with little or no access to healthy food due to mobility, availability, affordability, or a combination of the three; (2) a healthy corner store program aimed at providing healthier food options with urban corner stores; (3) a countywide outreach campaign to educate members of the public about healthy food options and; (4) forming a food policy working group in Kenton County to pursue future work related to food access.
