Healthy Eating and Activity Leads to a Happy Leaner You!
Did you know that chronic and health related diseases affect the overall economic stability of a community? For a community to thrive, residents need to be healthy and able to work or earn a living.
We promote healthy and active lifestyles as a means to complement activities in wealth building. Through our new Building a Healthy Community initiative, we encourage you to:
Get Engaged! Get Fit! Be Active! Go Garden! Get Healthy!

In 2009, we began a focus on nutrition education for youth and community gardening in Jacksonville. We will begin community gardening and nutrition in Opa-Locka in spring 2010 thanks in part to a grant from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida Foundation.
