The Program

SR2H includes six multigenerational components featuring nutrition education, food shopping skills, and physical activity behaviors and opportunities. Program components complement and build off of each other to address individual and environmental factors that influence health with the goal of increasing the skills, knowledge, and awareness of how to eat healthy and be active.

SR2H AmeriCorps Members will also engage in direct outreach efforts at local festivals and community events to interact with community members through health and wellness demonstrations such as recipe sharing, trails outreach, Rec-ConnectTM PA Tastings, basic bicycle safety, local healthy food resources, and other nutrition and physical activity reinforcing activities. Attending local festivals and community events will allow members to gain a broader connection to the community they are serving, encourage potential participants to get involved, receive community feedback, forge community partnerships, and recruit volunteers.
