We’re on a mission to make healthy eating – and living – easier for residents of food insecure communities.

HealthMPowers works to increase access to fresh fruits and vegetables – and promote nutrition education and healthy behaviors – through our partnerships with local community groups, store retailers, farmers markets and food pantries.

Through this larger wrap-around effect, we bring important health supports to the families and communities who care for the kids in Health Empowered schools, early care centers and after-care sites.

Results from our 2019-2020 community and store surveys reveal:

Empowering Healthy Habits

  • 98% of participants plan to purchase the taste testing fruit or vegetable again
  • 99% of participants expressed their intent to eat the fruit or vegetable again
