Between 2019-2020, LiveWell Greenville engaged 20 influential leaders, representing efforts across the many social determinants of health, to explore a broader, bolder strategic plan in collaboration with Tufts University and Boston College.
This process explored the systems in place that impact childhood obesity; considered evidence-based interventions and prioritized the opportunities for change to create a strategic plan for the next 3-5 years.

Greenville County Food Insecurity Index
Our Food Security Coalition partnered with Furman University to create an interactive map showing areas of Greenville County with highest risk of food insecurity.
The purpose of this tool is to help determine which areas have the greatest need for food resources, so that the appropriate community organizations can provide assistance. This it the first version of the tool. Census data will be updated as it becomes available.
The top five tracts most food insecure census tracts according to our index are Nicholtown, Mauldin, City View, Gantt, and Conestee.
Are there ways we can improve this tool? Let us know!
