The Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department and LiveWell Lawrence are displaying a photo gallery highlighting recent health advancements in Douglas County through Aug. 31 at Lawrence Public Library. In 2014, the Health Department received a three-year award from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to reduce chronic disease in Douglas County. Through the CDC award, the Health Department and LiveWell Lawrence focused their work on improving nutrition, increasing physical activity and reducing tobacco use and exposure to secondhand smoke. The gallery highlights the success in the areas of Safe Routes to School, Farm to School and tobacco-free parks. The public is invited to a reception during Final Fridays from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. Friday, Aug. 25, at the library, 707 Vermont St.

Mobile food pantry distributions are typically drive-through distributions that consist primarily of fresh produce, dairy items, and bakery items. They are open to anyone in need of food. No need to show proof of income or address. It is a “self-declared need” and people simply sign their name and let us know the number of people in their household.
