What We Do

The Nevada County Public Health Department supports the health of our community through programs that make the healthy choice the easy choice. That includes partnering with our community to change policy, systems and our built environment to support healthy choices, while also encouraging physical activity, healthy cooking classes, and other collaborations. Previously called NEOP, this program is now called CalFresh Healthy Living.
