HEAL (HEALTHY EATING ACTIVE LIVING)
What is the HEAL Initiative?
The Healthy Eating Active Living (HEAL) Initiative will empower La Porte County residents to live healthy lives by improving healthy eating habits and physical activity habits. In the areas of healthy eating and active living, the following will be addressed: behaviors, environments, and policies. To best address the needs of our community, HFL is committed to understanding HEAL within the framework of the social determinants of health as well as through an equity lens.
The end result of HEAL is that La Porte County residents are healthy and well, can access nutritious foods, and enjoy active living.
HEAL was launched in January 2022 and is an ongoing initiative within HFL's Healthy Living strategic priority.
