Better Block St. Joseph HEAL Recipient
A St. Joseph organization is the recipient of a grant designed to help improve the health of the community.
Better Block St. Joseph is to receive the Healthy Eating, Active Lifestyle, or HEAL, grant. Better Block St. Joseph is a grassroots effort to create livable, sustainable neighborhoods by actively improving the lifestyle of the citizens.
Mo-Kan Regional Council member Ellie Brewer says the HEAL grant will help Better Block St. Joseph promote a new program which encourages walking over driving.
Brewer adds in addition to the walking tour, Better Block plans to install signs near designated parking garages in St. Joseph to inform visitors how far a location would be if traveled by foot.
