Siskiyou named "hungriest county" in both California & Oregon

Feeding America recently released a study of the most food insecure counties in the nation. This got the attention of Jefferson Public Radio, who invited us to participate in The Jefferson Exchange on Monday, May 15th. Listen to our interview!

Have a Healthier New Year

Good lifelong health is achievable with just a couple simple steps. Audit your diet, exercise and sleep habits, along with stress management to feel better and healthier. To live a healthier life, remember to create small, manageable goals for long-term success. Here’s a short list of action items:

Eat your vegetables—Whether we know it or not, we’re usually pretty picky eaters. Some of us don’t even eat one serving of vegetables on a daily basis. With the new year, start incorporating more vegetables into your diet. Vegetables reduce the risk of developing cancers and improve our physical and mental health greatly.

Exercise daily—Exercise is essential to being healthy. All you need is 30 minutes of exercise a day to improve eyesight, bone density, lean muscle and immune system. Exercise also releases endorphins which can uplift your mood.

Sleep better—Make a goal to sleep better and for more time. If you need to, schedule it into your planner. Make sure to get 7 or 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep. Create a routine before you go to bed, drink chamomile tea and sleep in a cold, dark room. This will help you feel well-rested.

Reflect on life—Give yourself time to relax, decompress and reflect on life. Make sure that you are not overworking yourself and falling into depression or a stressful pattern. Take time to breathe, meditate and love yourself.
