The Within Our REACH team of CCPHA felt proud to host a booth at Stockton’s Black Family Day at Weber Point on Labor Day.
Our staff offered strawberry and tropical fruit infused waters at the booth. The colorful, delicious and healthy waters proved to be a refreshing hit with event goers!
The most eye-opening feature at our booth was the “Rethink Your Drink” display showing the amount of sugar in sodas, fruit nectars, sports drinks and other sweetened beverages. The display made a real impact--especially with kids and teens.
Nearly 70 people participated in our beverage survey, and early survey results show that people are drinking more water, and fewer sugar sweetened beverages.
Comfortable weather conditions also allowed us to connect with numerous community members about the General Plan Amendment, and their visions of how to make Stockton a healthier city.
