- Communities organizing free diabetes and other health screenings where communities are such as: shopping centers, local markets, the YMCA, and other spaces where families live, worship, and play.
- Communities adapting ethnic recipes and cultural produce to eat healthier.
- Communities partnering with schools and parks to provide safe spaces to gather, exercise, and play.
