Our original Healthy Lifestyles program was founded by the financial support we received from the Pillsbury/Progresso Foods Foundation almost twenty years ago. While this funding source is no longer available, our commitment to providing opportunities for our consumers to participate in activities that will assist them to live happier and healthier lives remains a priority for the Arc of Cumberland County.
