Healthier Somerset presented the last of its nutrition seminars last week. Children and adults of all ages attended the Bound Brook session, which featured fun and informative games about nutritious foods, smoothie and salad demonstrations and sampling, and information about public transportation options.
EmPoWER Somerset and Zufall Health Centers partnered with NJ SNAP-Ed to plan and implement the seminars. RideWise TMA presented the transportation information and provided bus tickets purchased with ShapingNJ grant funds.
Our Complete Streets component is moving along nicely. Bound Brook, the most recent of the three boroughs to adopt the program, will install its just-delivered bike racks shortly.
We think the bike racks look like little robots!
We’re now at 7 municipalities (one-third of Somerset County) that have passed a resolution of support for the program. Our final ShapingNJ grant partner, Somerville, will vote on a Complete Streets resolution at its meeting on Tuesday, September 8. We’ll be there to support passage of the resolution!
