Share Your Experience

Join us as the City hosts a Healthy Eating Active Living Open House for you to share your thoughts on how the built environment helps and/or hinders the ability to have access to healthy foods and active living opportunities

What is Healthy Eating Active Living?

Healthy Eating, Active Living (HEAL) promotes equitable access and opportunities to healthy, affordable food and to active living. It examines how health may be affected by the built environment by promoting healthier food options and physical activity through daily routines.

Healthy eating may be encouraged through many methods:

  • Access to full-service grocery stores
  • Limiting access to less healthful food and beverage
  • Promoting community-based agriculture through community gardens and edible landscaping

Active living describes a way of life in which physical activity is integrated into daily routines. Active living is encouraged through many methods:

  • Ensuring a connected sidewalk and bicycle path network
  • Promoting complete streets
  • Ensuring access to public transit
  • Supporting 20 minute neighborhoods
  • Promoting equitable and increased access to parks

The equity element of Healthy Eating Active Living examines how access and opportunities to healthy food and physical activity vary in different segments of a community. The community may be examined through different geographies and different traits of the population such as by race, ethnicity, age, and socio-economic status.

This effort is funded through the Multnomah County Healthy Department, Communities Putting Prevention to Work (CPPW) program.
