Making the Healthy Choice the Easy Choice

About Us

Eat Smart Move  More Chester County (ESMMCC), part of the South Carolina Eat Smart Move More Coalition, is a community-based organization that has been meeting monthly since it was established in 2011-2012. ESMMCC works collaboratively to address issues related to policy, systems and environmental changes that will lead to improved health of our residents.

ESMMCC has three focus areas:

  1. Access to Healthy Foods
  2. Active Community Environments
  3. Tobacco-Free Environments

 

In the first half of 2015, ESMMCC developed an “Action Plan for Tobacco-Free Environments” with the help of the South Carolina Tobacco-Free Collaborative. The overall goal is to create a Chester County that supports a tobacco -free environment through adoption of tobacco-free polices and promotion of opportunities for tobacco -free lifestyles. The desired outcomes is to have a comprehensive countywide smoke-free ordinance.
