Kittitas (pronounced 'KITT-i-tass') County is located in central Washington
State. It spans from the lush forested Cascade Mountains to the upper Yakima River Valley plains and
the Columbia River.
The Kittitas County Public Health Department (KCPHD) wants to increase access to healthy foods.
By increasing access to healthy foods, residents can eat healthier wherever they live.
The Food Access Coalition’s mission is to engage local programs and agencies in advancing access to healthy foods in Kittitas County. Members from across the community come together to create partnerships and coordinate efforts to ensure that all Kittitas County residents have access to food and food resources.
Currently, the coalition is inactive. However, you may call or email the health department to get connected.
Members of the Food Access Coalition for Kittitas County have included representatives
In 2007, the director of the FISH Food Bank approached staff at the health department about how to get more healthy foods, especially fresh produce into the food bank. With an obesity prevention grant, staff started consulting with others in the community about how to increase access to healthy foods in our community and, in May 2007, the coalition was born.
For more information about access to healthy foods, nutrition education, and resources, please visit KCPHD’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-Ed) page.
Kittitas County has a total area of 2,333 square miles. The highest point in the county is Mount Daniel at 7,959 feet above sea level.
