Health Matters

KEY (Keystone Empowers You) is a Community Collaborative made up of 17 local partners that are working to increase access to physical activity and healthy food options in the Keystone area. The collaborative aspires to have a community where more adults have access to exercise programs--both formal and informal--and are exercising regularly, there is an increase availability of fresh fruits and vegetables in schools, neighborhoods and workplaces, and youth spend less time playing with electronics or watching TV and more time engaging in the recommended amount of daily exercise.

Projects being planned in the Keystone area include improving concessions offered during school and community events, a pantry garden to provide residents with access to fresh fruits and vegetables and physical activity programming in community venues.
