Great Lakes Community Action Partnership has been serving the northwest Ohio area for more than 50 years. We began in 1965 as WSOS Community Action Commission following the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964, which helped create hundreds of community action agencies throughout the United States. Our letters stood for the core counties we served — Wood, Sandusky, Ottawa, and Seneca. Since then, we have progressively expanded the scope of our services, adding other counties, states and even countries to our service area.
You are born with about 10,000 taste buds. Your tastes change as you age. As you grow older, you may begin enjoying foods that you once didn’t like. Sweets might not taste as good to you as they did when you were a kid. You might begin eating—and even preferring—salty, spicy and bitter foods. Coffee may taste good. Brussels sprouts too. But a lot of our flavor preferences are also rooted in our early experiences with food. As adults, we gravitate towards the foods we ate when we were children.

GLCAP was invited to the hearing by U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur (OH-9), who serves as chairperson of the subcommittee.
