What We Do
Healthy for Life® is a community-based nutrition and well-being program created by Aramark and the American Heart Association (AHA) that focuses on empowering people to make healthy food, nutrition, and lifestyle choices. The program incorporates interactive components, such as demonstrations on healthy shopping and cooking. Ultimately, the goal of Healthy for Life® is to equip individuals and families with the tools to seek and prepare healthy food, and to show participants how to use these skills to help them accomplish their goals and reach their potential every day. This program focuses its impact on communities across the U.S. and is built on a framework that emphasizes literacy and culinary skills.
Who We Serve
Healthy for Life® is geared towards heads-of-households who are responsible for meal-planning or anyone interested in learning new ways to integrate healthy cooking and eating into their lives.
How We Impact
The goal of Healthy for Life® is to change dietary practices, including increasing the consumption of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. The program recognizes that community-based health and wellness programs create a sense of empowerment and ownership, which helps to improve overall health in a sustainable way.
