Good Eats, Safe Streets
Good Eats, Safe Streets sets aside the month of July as a time to focus on how place and culture impact Asian American, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders accessing the things we need to make healthy eating and active living part of our lives and communities.
Good Eats are healthy, affordable, non-contaminated, culturally-familiar foods that make our families and communities stronger. We recognize that Good Eats can be served in the school lunchroom, in WIC baskets, at church potlucks, and at our community gatherings – but only if we demand them from food manufacturers and retailers. During this month of activities, we’ll highlight where Good Eats can be found and their importance to our communities.
Safe Streets are outdoor places that are clean, free of crime and pollution, and allow us to move our bodies for recreation (like yoga, tai chi, and sports), as well as for everyday transportation (like walking and biking). When streets are safe for physical activities, living healthy becomes easier and more accessible.
Visit GoodEatsSafeStreets.org for a calendar of events taking place across the Pacific Islands and throughout the continental U.S. And join in with your family and friends by doing something healthy and active in your community!
