Instead, the city of Eugene has contracted with Ume Grill to provide snacks and beverages that meet the city's nutritional requirements, which were developed by LCHAY.
A number of resources to support the creation and implementation of these policies are available on the LCHAY website (www.lchay.org), including LCHAY's healthy vending nutrition standards.
That's where LCHAY's Win With Water campaign comes in.
Right now these posters are featured at Amazon Pool, and the city of Eugene has generously contributed Win With Water-branded water bottles to LCHAY's campaign.
LCHAY is ready to distribute posters and campaign materials to sites around Lane County serving children including other local pools, recreation centers, dentists, and pediatrician offices.
LCHAY will continue to work with Lane County Public Health and other agencies to advocate for policies and programs that will result in a healthier community.
As we consider the efforts to curb health care costs nationwide, LCHAY welcomes the emphasis on disease prevention and coordinated care in Oregon's health care reform program.
