Safe Routes to Healthy Food for Older Adults - DC

older adults talking

For older adults whose transportation options are limited, having safe options for walking or taking transit to healthy food is an important way to maintain independence, health, and community connections. With grant funding from AARP, the Safe Routes Partnership is working with community members from DC’s Bellevue neighborhood to improve traffic safety and connections to healthy food through a traffic safety demonstration and series of traffic-themed community art workshops.
