Revere on the Move – Initiatives


While meetings with Revere parents showed that they want to raise healthy children, parents can’t do it alone. That’s why the Food & Fitness initiative works in and with Revere schools and the community as a whole to create healthier environments and opportunities for children and families. All these efforts combined represent Revere on the Move. To date, improvements have been made to 6 local parks thanks to members of summer programs that “adopted” their own park, and access to the farmers’ market has been improved by offering EBT, Bounty Bucks, and expanded hours. Revere’s first Urban Trail launched in the fall of 2011, creating a safe and frequently-used walking path in the city that makes it easy for residents to be active in their own neighborhood. Revere on the Move will work to expand and improve upon these successes, while pursuing other opportunities to improve physical activity and healthy eating.
