Opportunities that include the healthy meals program, “Kids in the Kitchen” Workshop, nutrition consultation, tness challenges with segments of healthy eating, and an upgraded healthy meals program for senior citizens.
The mayor stated, “I am pleased to hear about the continued growth of the healthy eating initiative. This program is extremely important to me as it offers residents with options to improve their health.”
During the last two years, the mayor, has promoted healthy living and eating and have encouraged all residents to do so. Under their leadership, the City and community organizations have established community gardens and urban farms.
