2003: Objective II / Strategy 1

The Nathan Cummings Foundation


2003: Objective II / Strategy 1

Objective II: To assure that people, especially those that are vulnerable due to low- to moderate-socioeconomic status, race, or ethnicity, can grow-up, live, and work in a healthy environment and have access to products and food that have not been contaminated in ways that could undermine health.

Strategy 2: To support efforts to prevent and to reduce corporate and other institutional practices which have a negative impact on health because they degrade the environment of communities, especially low-income communities and communities of color, or contaminate products and food in ways that could be injurious to health.
