HEALTHY EATING AND TRAINING
Exactly as it sounds; this committee strives to improve the way we (The good folks in our local communities and possibly yours) have been eating as well as treating our bodies and minds. Recognizing the need for better options in these specific areas, we decided to reach out directly to a few friendly resources and are proud to be able to share them with our community as well as you and yours. If you live, work, visit or otherwise frequent the Philadelphia area then you are already within arms reach of one of our working partners, sponsors, clients or active members, what we like to call our “range of change.., our scope of hope”.
Are you what you eat?
Healthy eating is important to any society, with this in mind our H.E.A.T. committee wants to rid our communities of the ridiculously overpriced and under qualified poisoned–garbage (for lack of a better term) being solicited to our families, friends, and neighbors in our community and if necessary the stores that promote and sell them as well. To achieve this, we must first implement the alternative so we hopped clear over the misleading G.M.O./ hormone hurdles, skipped past the Hipster infested Supermarkets and their super-inflated “sales” and jumped over the falsely labeled “natural” and sometimes questionable “organic” item lines. So where did we land..?
Philabundance (“Created in 1984 with the simple belief that no man, woman or child should go hungry and seek to drive hunger from communities today and end hunger forever.”)
Grocers Against Hunger is Philabundance’s strategic initiative to unite grocers throughout the Delaware Valley in the fight against hunger. This program follows all necessary food safety guidelines, transports product via our fleet of refrigerated trucks and inspects donated product at pick-up and distribution points. The combined efforts of retailers, their own direct services and network of emergency food locations is evident in Grocers Against Hunger’s ability to collectively donate over 8.0 million pounds of food and counting!
West Phillie produce (“Community-Based Family Owned/Operated Fresh Produce Market with Fresh Fruit and Vegetables displayed in a user-friendly walkthrough atmosphere.”)
Clark Park Farmers’ Market (“More than just an opportunity to buy food and flowers. It’s an integral neighborhood event, where neighbors and visitors come together to talk, shop, and revitalize their community. They can meet the farmers who grow their food and help support local agriculture.”)
Special thanks to these retailers for their dedication to helping us feed thousands of people each week.
