What's New from REACH?
Walking Maps
The REACH initiative is enhancing its shared use partnerships by creating walking maps for each shared use site. These maps will focus on the shared use property boundaries and give residents a walking goal (e.g., "Six laps around the building is equal to one mile"). The maps are one tool in the creation of local walking clubs. If you or someone you know would be interested in helping lead weekly walks at one of the PRCHN's shared use site, please contact Briana McIntosh. A full list of shared use locations are available on the PRCHN website.

Healthy Food Retail
The PRCHN is part of the FARE (Food Access Raises Everyone) Project, which is a broad-based, community-wide initiative designed to connect and support organizations and individuals engaging in healthy food access work in Cleveland and Cuyahoga County. FARE has been working with the PRCHN and other local partners to identify ways to move the program towards sustainability and expand its impact over the next several months.

In support of these efforts, FARE brought The Food Trust's Juan Vila to Cleveland on April 26th to conduct a Good Food Here Ambassador training in partnership with HIP-Cuyahoga. This training offered community leaders the opportunity to learn more about working with corner and convenience stores to improve healthy food options in their neighborhoods. The training was part of the REACH Healthy Food Retail sustainability plan to introduce the Ambassador model to groups that might want to implement it within their community organizations.

In addition, the PRCHN is hiring a FARE Fellow to explore market-based models and partnerships that can support healthier options in these stores over time. Both of these efforts are designed to build more community capacity and ownership, and strengthen the business case for store owners. If you'd like more information on the program or training, email Morgan!
