The Montclair Health Department was awarded a grant through Partners for Health Foundation as part of the New Jersey Healthy Communities Network community grants.
The goals of the project are to:
*Increase availability and variety of affordable, fresh produce
*Increase the visibility and attractiveness of the healthier options
*Increase the sales of fresh produce
*Increase the sales of milk and water
We will be working in partnership with Eat, Play, Live, Better….Montclair and the members of the Healthy Eating Action Team (HEAT). Team members include our neighbors at the Bloomfield Health Department, The Salvation Army, Bike & Walk Montclair, The Devil Gourmet, Boxed Organics, Toni’s Kitchen and Montclair State University.
We are still in the early stages of planning, but be on the look out for healthier options near you!
