Through the City of Philadelphia’s Recovery Act-funded Get Healthy Philly initiative, the City’s Department of Public Health and its partners are working to make it easier for Philadelphians to eat healthy and be active. Where healthy eating and active living as a normal part of everyone’s routine is envisioned for the whole city.
Here’s how the City is making it easier for Philadelphians to eat healthy:
- Creating 600 Healthy Corner Stores that sell new, healthy products.
- Bringing ten new farmers’ markets to low-income communities.
- Introducing the Philly Food Bucks program to help food stamp recipients purchase fruits and vegetables.
- Putting Healthy Carts in areas of Philadelphia that lack access to fresh produce.
