Atlantic City Walking Paths and Produce Program

On March 15, our team toured the three parks in Atlantic City where we will be establishing walking paths. In addition to the walking paths, we will be displaying signage at each site promoting the benefits of walking. We are working closely with the Atlantic City Health Department to complete these endeavors. We are also working with the local supermarket, Save-A-Lot, to set up a produce voucher system. We decided to partner with Save-A-Lot as many city residents shop at this store, and it is the only source of produce within the City limits until the Farmer’s Market resumes in July. Save-A-Lot is presenting our produce voucher ideas to their national office, and we anticipate a response in the near future. To complement our produce promotion, we will be hosting a series of food demonstrations within Atlantic City so that residents can learn new ways to prepare and enjoy healthy and fresh fruits and vegetables. We will be teaming up with the AC Health Department and the AC Housing Authority to offer these demonstrations.
