Improving the Health of the Community

Siouxland District Health Department and a variety of community partners are working to improve access to physical activity and healthy foods and beverages through a variety of initiatives. Here is a snap shot of what has happened: 

  • Siouxland Community Health Center and Unity Point Health at Sunnybrook and Segeant Bluff has started a fruit and vegetable prescription program
  • Five worksites have started gardens
  • Three businesses are working to add healthier choices to vending machines
  • One local cafeteria will be highlighting and promoting their healthier options
  • Two daycares modified breakfast and snack menus and will be implementing an evidence based physical activity program called CATCH
  • The City of Moville, Woodbury Central Community School District, The City of Sergeant Bluff, and Sergeant Bluff Community School District are starting a Safe Routes to School program and the cities will be making some infrastructure improvements that will make city streets safer for residents.
