Our Community

  • Does your neighborhood grocery store sell good quality, low-cost fruits and vegetables?
  • Do you have a community garden?
  • Is your neighborhood safe (well lit, low crime, etc.)?
  • Do you have bike lanes and walking paths?
  • Can you use the gym, playground, and sports fields at your local school after-hours?

If you answered "no" to any of these questions, then your neighborhood is ready for some good changes.

Why speak up for healthy changes?

  • Every neighborhood deserves to have clean, safe places where good quality, low-cost fruits and vegetables are easy to get.
  • Every neighborhood deserves to be clean with safe places to enjoy fun physical activities.
  • And you, your family, and your neighbors can help make these healthy changes happen.
