Active Living and Healthy Eating
Conduct a needs assessment of gaps and opportunities for policy, programs, environment, and infrastructure for active transportation in Monroe County. Educate municipal leaders and planners on the importance of active transportation and how to incorporate effective options into their comprehensive plans. Pursue opportunities for funding of active transportation projects. Foster active transportation promotional events.
Create a self-sustaining “food hub” in our community at which healthful (and in most cases, local) food can be purchased, stored and distributed to various locations: schools, child care providers, group homes, corner stores, produce carts, farm stands, neighborhood food clubs, and deaf community social organizations.
