The Partnership for a Healthy Community is a community-driven effort to improve health and wellness in Central Illinois. Multiple organizations, sectors, and the public participate in population health planning to identify and prioritize health needs and quality of life issues, map and leverage community resources, and form effective partnerships to implement health improvement strategies in Peoria, Tazewell, and Woodford Counties. Please visit the Healthy HOI page to learn more.
Using actionable data to identify health needs and priorities, including those related to health disparities, health inequities, and the social determinants of health, the Partnership for a Healthy Community developed the 2016 to 2019 Community Health Improvement Plan (PDF).
The goal of the Good Food Recovery is to improve the availability of healthy food alternatives to food banks, food pantries and kitchens through donated fresh vegetables, fruit and prepared meals. Recovering unsold, surplus food is easy with Good Food Recovery’s Web application called ChowMatch, which will match food donations with hunger relief organizations and volunteer food runners for transportation.
