First 5 Butte County grantee partners were recognized and thanked by staff for their wonderful work on behalf of our youngest community members. Over sixty grantees, representing 16 projects currently funded by First 5 Butte County, came together to enjoy a yummy lunch, receive certificates of appreciation, network, and hear updates from First 5 staff about new policies and opportunities.
As a final thank you, grantees were invited to “shop” at the Thank You Table and pick up a variety of goodies for their programs. First 5 staff looks forward to hosting more events that bring our grantees together to share great ideas and explore ways to better serve our community.

In recent First 5 Butte County mini-grant awards, grantees have been encouraged to serve healthy beverages at First 5 sponsored events. Health Committee Members expressed interest in exploring the possibility of developing a First 5 Butte County policy regarding the need to serve healthy beverages at First 5 sponsored events. The draft policy was adopted at the October Commission meeting.
First 5 Butte County is proud to share the new Healthy Beverage Policy!
