Shaping Dover

Morris County Family Success Center, a program of the Partnership for Maternal & Child Health of Northern New Jersey, is leading the Shaping Dover project

Our plans include healthy eating and food environment assessment.  We will assess the local restaurants, corner stores, supermarkets and different food sources in the Dover area to determine the nutritional gaps.

Physical activity- We will conduct an assessment of the physical activity environment in the Dover area.  This will include determining what is available for the community to include physical activity in their daily lives and where the gaps may be.

The change we hope to implement is to make healthier foods more available at the local restaurants and corner stores and to encourage healthier food options in the Latino community.  We also hope to increase access to physical activity in the community.  In particular we would like to possibly implement bike lanes and to explore the complete streets policy.
