Wholespire York County is a collaborative, community-based coalition comprised of members striving to increase access to healthy choices in York County, South Carolina.
Diabetes, heart disease, and other health issues can be prevented and managed when people have access to healthy choices. Access means grocery stores within walking distance and neighborhoods with unbroken or uneven sidewalks. Also, access means parks with lights and playgrounds with safe equipment. When communities don’t have access to healthy choices, individual health and standards of living are poor.
