When your team accomplishes something that positively impacts the health and well-being of Service Members and the military community, celebrate it! Whether it’s staging a commissary event to sample produce, hosting a farmers market, doing a cooking demo for tweens at the library, working with stakeholders to bring a new, healthier restaurant onto base, or building a community garden at the elementary school—it’s time to share your success!
