YMCA HEALTHY LIVING sites

Support from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation has allowed the YMCA of Greater Grand Rapids to establish Healthy Living Sites in Grand Rapids’ highest need neighborhoods.

These sites serve as central locations where families living in food desert neighborhoods come to access fresh food and participate in family-centered physical activity. In addition, our Healthy Living Sites are places where families participate in community gardening, healthy cooking classes, Zumba, Kickboxing, WERQ, Sit and Be Fit, Matter of Balance, and other high energy, fun activities. Programs at the sites address the health disparities that disproportionately affect Latino and African American families living in urban Grand Rapids.
