Partners across all sectors of Warren County have come together to make this community healthier and give our children a better chance at long, full lives.
In 2015, Shape Up Mississippi, a nonprofit focused on making Vicksburg the fittest city in the nation, was awarded a $10,000 Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Coaching Grant. Funds were divided up to help develop and implement solutions to problems that affect our community.
Our community walks, runs and bikes together through annual sports and recreational events.
Our community is invested in its culture of health through our Mayoral Health Council and Good Shepherd Community Center's free clinic.
Warren County grows together through the Vicksburg Community Garden Project, the Vicksburg Farmers' Market and Meals on Wheels.
