Policy Win

Working with the Healthy After School Snack Food Committee we are proud to say that have been involved with helping to make policy changes in the city of Kingston that may have significant  implications in the food that is available in vending machines in municipally owned and operated buildings. Please review the draft of the resolution that was adopted by the City of Kingston Common Council on October 1st, 2013.

Who we are...

The Community Heart Health Coalition of Ulster County was formed to promote heart disease prevention through physical activity and nutrition initiatives.

Select from the menu on the left to visit our various projects.

Here are a group of volunteers reclaiming an abandoned piece of the rail trail and making it walkable and user friendly for people with disabilities. This project was made possible with funds from The Community Heart Health Coalition of Ulster County, the direction and coordination of Kingston Parks and Recreation and the help of volunteers.

As members of the coalition we are looking to increase the opportunities for our neighbors to choose healthier lifestyles through food selection and fitness opportunities.

As a community, working together we can combine resources to create programs and events, as well as supporting physical activity training and health education efforts.
