About the ACNA
The Alachua County Nutrition Alliance (ACNA) was first created to help implement the County’s Hunger Abatement Plan (HAP) dated 2009. Collaborators include local, state and federal agencies and programs, non-profit and faith-based organizations, and interested citizens. We are concerned with crisis support, health care, and the ‘food system’ as a whole. But it is our consideration of the longer term potential of a sustainable food system that makes this group unique.
The main purpose of this site is to collect and disseminate information relating to food security and nutrition. We also have a documents library on Google Drive. (Contact us for access privileges)
ACNA meetings are held on the 3rd Mondays of each month (but check our calendar), at 1:00, at Highlands Community Church, 1001 NE 16th Ave., Gainesville, FL.
