Residents and families are invited on Sunday, Oct. 18, to attend a community-wide dialogue on healthy eating and staying active sponsored by Be Well Belmont.
The free event, which is open to everyone in town, will take place from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Beech Street Center.
The event will provide the public an opportunity to share their thoughts on making Belmont a healthier community.
Be Well Belmont’s overriding goal – which is a project of the Belmont Food Collaborative – is to promote healthy eating and being active in Belmont through education, programming and improving access to opportunities for the whole community. The group collaborates with town government, schools and community groups.
Early successes include:
- A screening of the documentary “Fed Up” in March.
- Funding the crossing flag pilot program started by Safe Routes to Schools.
- A successful series of cooking classes are focusing on healthy recipes with locally produced food.
- Collaborating on a National Food Day initiative.
A community needs survey is underway:
