Build Healthy Places Network’s Video Snapshots offer quick deep dives with experts from the community development, health, and finance sectors. Our current series uplifts practices that support community engagement processes and projects that are community-led and owned. Learn from practitioners from across sectors, who together are working to make neighborhoods healthier through centering the voices of residents.

In this 13 minute interview, Build Healthy Places Network speaks with Diane Moss, the Managing Director of Project New Village (PNV), an organization improving fresh food access in Southeastern San Diego through resident-led, community rooted experiences that stimulate collective investments in social determinants of health. PNV was also a part of BHPN’s first Community Innovations cohort!

During this discussion, Miss Moss describes PNV’s Growers Network and Mobile Farmers Market role in creating more equitable food access in San Diego. She also provides some insights into the centering community voice while working with partners like large healthcare organizations to address food insecurity.
