OPT sets up downtown

Key nutrition and physical activity education program has new digs

A key program from Chico State’s Center for Nutrition & Activity (CNAP) moved into a new location in downtown Chico, but services will mostly remain the same and, in some cases, expand.

OPT for Healthy Living, which focuses on physical activity and nutrition education efforts throughout the community, moved from their longtime location on Mangrove Avenue to just upstairs from CNAP’s office at 25 Main St., according to a CNAP press release. OPT’s ongoing Eat Right When Money’s Tight food-budgeting classes and the hands-on cooking class Get Cookin’ will continue, but will be hosted by rotating community groups around town rather than at the OPT office.

Additionally, OPT is now offering a new service—lactation counseling with certified lactation specialists. For more information call 345-0678.
