Mass in Motion Worcester is dedicated to changing community contexts to make the healthy choice, the easy choice. After reorganizing the local Public Health Department in 2010, Mass in Motion Worcester is working with the Worcester Food and Active Living Policy council and community-based partners from all sectors to create a sustained approach for active living and healthy eating by initiating or expanding policy, systems, and environmental change. By becoming a Mass in Motion community in 2009 and teaming up with community partners, this is becoming a reality through plans to enhance infrastructure for walking and biking, provide education on the important of healthy eating and active living, and increase local food access through implementing the new school nutrition standards and working with local corner stores to offer healthier foods and drinks though a Healthy Markets initiative.
