Healthy food access and military care, this Wednesday, January 6th on LiveWire! We are starting of the New Year with two special guests, Alchemist CDC and The Soldiers Project. Alchemist will be talking about their programs including creating opportunities for people to access healthy foods in areas not normally available to them. The Soldiers Project will be speaking about the unique resources available for veterans.
Alchemist CDC mission is “Support Sacramento area residents in their efforts to create vibrant, equitable, healthy and diverse communities.” To do this they have been occupied on many projects including bring CalFresh access to local farmers markets. They have also been working with local convince stores to provide fresh produce in their stores.

The Soldiers Project provides free and confidential psychological services to veterans and their loved ones post September 11, 2001. The Soldiers Project is a non-profit that started in 2004 when the founder was inspired by a theatre performance that showed the dramatic affects war has on soldiers. Since then it has grown with over 500 volunteer therapists assisting veterans across the United States including a chapter here in Sacramento.
