Eat Well – a Fresh Approach
Virtua Health’s mission is to help you be well, get well, stay well.
The Eat Well initiative furthers that goal by supporting nutrition as the foundation of a healthy lifestyle. By creating reliable and affordable sources for nutritious food, Virtua intends to create communities of wellness that demonstrate the impact a balanced diet can have on the health of an individual, a family, and entire neighborhoods.
Starting in 2017 with the launch of the Eat Well Mobile Farmers Market, Virtua Health has leveraged traveling programs to bring services and support to neighborhoods that are traditionally underserved. Both densely populated cities and spacious rural communities benefit from increased access to affordable, nutritious foods. Because the mobile programs visit the same destinations on a reliable schedule, meaningful relationships develop over time. And because the programs are year-round, our friends in the neighborhood know they can count on us.
A recipient of the New Jersey Hospital Association’s “Healthy New Jersey” Award, the Eat Well initiative is a nationally recognized leader in preventive, population health that prioritizes the fundamental needs of those it serves. Learn more about each of the program’s components below.
The most senior food access program, the Eat Well Mobile Farmers Market visits sites in Burlington and Camden counties year-round, empowering communities through nutrition education and access to an inventory of fresh, seasonal, and local produce – always discounted to make the right choice the easy choice.
