HEALTHY Muskegon

Healthy Eating and Access – Local Teams Helping Youth

This is about vitality. Healthiness is happiness, and healthiness starts with our food. The HEALTHY Muskegon program is committed to the goal of providing fresh, local, healthy food for everyone in our community. Through a re-granting program (View the recipients here!), network meeting, learning journeys and shared knowledge and experience, we work together with HEALTHY Muskegon to improve our community’s health.

The Coalition for Community Development helps students at MLK Elementary plant carrots.
