Kenosha Farmers’ Market Video and Pamphlet
By Racine Kenosha Community Action Agency
Racine Kenosha Community Action created this video and pamphlet to highlight their local work on farmers’ markets as part of the CPHMC project.
As a result of the Community Partnerships for Healthy Mothers and Children (CPHMC) grant, ‘K-HIP’ the Kenosha Health Improvement Project coalition took the lead on coordinating the activities, which ultimately led to building a culture of health. This project sought to reduce the impact of chronic diseases in Kenosha, WI, through policy, system, and environmental strategies that improve access to healthy foods and beverages and that strengthen community and clinical linkages. Grocery stores developed promotional materials that encouraged healthy food choices. Farmers provided suggestions on ways to increase the foot traffic at long-standing community markets with decorative seasonal signage and offering evening hours. Representatives from physician offices, the Health Department, UW– Extension, Racine Kenosha Community Action—WIC, and the YMCA developed a non-pharmaceutical prescription pad “Eat. Move. Thrive” to improve the health of Kenosha residents.
