Riverside Community Health Foundation (RCHF) and its partners invite residents of Riverside’s Eastside neighborhood to provide feedback about the HEAL (Healthy Eating Active Living) Zone Initiative at four upcoming resident meetings:

Thursday, January 31, 2013, 9:00 - 11:00 a.m. & 6 - 8 p.m., Stratton Center at Bordwell Park, 2008 Martin Luther King, Riverside 92507; Tuesday, February 5, 2013, 9:30 - 11:30 a.m. & 6 - 8 p.m., SDA Spanish Church of Riverside, 3625 Ottawa Avenue, Riverside 92507.

These meetings are for Eastside residents only and reservations are requested, but not required. Please call 951.788.3471 to make your reservation. Residents need only to attend one of the four sessions.

These meetings will provide vital information to be used in forming the Community Action Plan component of the HEAL Zone Initiative. The goal of the HEAL Zone is to decrease calorie consumption, increase consumption of healthy food and beverages such as fresh fruits and vegetables and drinking water and increase physical activity in Eastside’s parks, schools, farmers markets and corner stores.

Last January, Riverside County Health Coalition received $1 million from Kaiser Permanente to promote healthy eating and physical activity on the Eastside. Riverside Community Health Foundation is assisting the facilitation of community engagement of residents and partner agencies.

For more information about the Eastside HEAL Zone or Resident Meetings, please contact one of the following people: Ninfa Delgado, Vice President, 951-788-3471, ninfa@rchf.org; Gilbert Espinoza, Public Relations & Outreach Coordinator, 951-788-3471, gilbert@rchf.org or Maricela Cardenas, Program Assistant, 951-788-3471, maricela@rchf.org.
